California Geological Survey

California is the most geologically diverse and the second most seismically active state in the USA. The California Geological Survey provides scientific products and services about the state's geology, seismology and mineral resources, including their related hazards, 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 produce more products and provide more services to more people than any other state survey. –“A​ltiora Petimus”​ ​(We Reach Higher​​)
