circular cover
To ensure that the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) is prepared to meet society's need for scientific information, the USGS has developed a scientific strategy to address the complex Earth science issues that the Nation and the world are likely to face in the next decade. As part of that strategy, the USGS Coastal and Marine Geology Program has large-scale national and regional research projects that focus specifically on environmental quality, geologic hazards, natural resources, and information transfer. These themes parallel and complement the goals of the USGS science strategy.

This Circular highlights recent scientific findings, products, and activities of the USGS Coastal and Marine Geology Program. Research results as highlighted here play a vital role in the USGS endeavor to understand human interactions with the natural environment and to determine how the fundamental geologic processes controlling the Earth work. Planners, government agencies, and the public critically need the scientific knowledge acquired through USGS research, assessment, and monitoring. Effective communication of the results of this research will enable the USGS Coastal and Marine Geology Program to play an integral part in assisting the Nation in responding to the pressing Earth Science challenges of the 21st century.
