Mission Statement: "Collect, interpret and provide objective quality geologic information about Florida."
The Florida Geological Survey is the premier state government institution specializing in geoscience research and assessments to provide objective quality data and interpretations.
Environmental, conservation, and public-welfare issues are addressed through applied field and laboratory investigations supported by our geologic sample and research libraries as well as
collaborative efforts within the Florida Department of Environmental Protection and with other regulatory or policy-making entities. The FGS is dedicated to facilitating a culture of environmental stewardship.
This is achieved by proactively sharing knowledge through accessible geoscience data, active participation on advisory committees, research and assessment publications, websites, public and
technical presentations and educational activities.
