Peat soils in the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta and their relationship to water quality; the history and consequences of long-term groundwater use in the Mojave Desert; the hydrology, biology and geology of San Francisco Bay; earthquake monitoring and water sampling equipment are just some of the more than 50 exhibits that will explain the work of the U.S. Geological Survey in California at Friday’s open house at Placer Hall on the California State University campus at 6000 J Street in Sacramento.

The USGS exhibits, along with those from the CSUS Department of Geology, will be available for viewing throughout Placer Hall on the CSUS campus from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., Friday, April 18. All the exhibits will be monitored by USGS scientists and CSUS students, who are eager to discuss their projects with interested persons.

Friday’s open house at Placer Hall is part of the celebration of the dedication of the new earth-science building at 4 p.m. Visitors to the open house will have an opportunity to view the science exhibits, visit with the scientists and tour the five-story building.

Editors: To arrange preview showings of the exhibits, tours of the facility and interviews with USGS scientists, call USGS California State Representative, Mike Shulters, at 916-278-3026.

The USGS serves the nation by providing reliable scientific information to describe and understand the Earth; minimize loss of life and property from natural disasters; manage water, biological, energy, and mineral resources; and enhance and protect our quality of life.
