STATEMAP Mission Statement: To establish a geologic framework through detailed mapping of areas determined to be vital to the economic, societal, or scientific welfare of Florida.

Background and History


Evaluating how surface water injection and infiltration into our aquifers affects water chemistry. Research in this area includes water-rock interaction and metals mobilization often found in Aquifer Storage and Recovery (ASR); Florida springs and aquifer system ambient geochemistry data collection and interpretation; and water quality trends analysis. Recent FGS projects in this research area include:

Florida Aquifer Storage and Recovery (ASR) & Aquifer Recharge (AR) Studies

Sinkhole Research

The Florida Geological Survey (FGS) was contracted by the Florida Division of Emergency Management (FDEM) to produce a map depicting the state’s vulnerability to sinkhole formation following a mass sinkhole event triggered by record rainfall from Tropical Storm Debby in June of 2012. The three-year project began with a pilot study in three northern Florida counties: Columbia, Hamilton and Suwannee.
