Short Profile Description

In order to respond to evolving national priorities, the USGS must periodically reflect on and optimize its strategic directions. This report is the first comprehensive science strategy since the early 1990s to critically examine our major science goals and priorities. The development of this science strategy comes at a time of global trends that have important natural-science implications. The emergence of a global economy affects the demand for all resources. In turn, use of these natural resources is occurring on a scale that may modify the terrestrial, marine, and atmospheric environments upon which human civilization depends. The use of and competition for natural resources on the global scale, and natural threats to those resources, has the potential to impact the Nation's ability to sustain its economy, national security, quality of life, and natural environment.
