The California Geological Survey provides scientific products and services about the state's geology, seismology and mineral resources that affect the health, safety, and business interests of the people of California. We are one of the oldest geological surveys in the nation, and today provide products and services to more people than any other state survey. –“A​ltiora Petimus”​ ​(We Reach Higher​​)
