Welcome to the U.S. Geological Survey Northwest Region

Hello! Welcome to the Regional Executive for the U.S. Geological Survey Northwest Region. We conduct impartial, multi- and inter-disciplinary research and monitoring on a large range of natural-resource issues that impact the quality of life of citizens of the Northwest states of Idaho, Montana, Oregon, Washington and Wyoming (see Info Sheet). For example, our scientists conduct research and monitoring of regional water quality, quantity and availability, aquatic and terrestrial ecology, coastal and river hydraulics and sediment transport, fish pathology, forests, arid lands and sagebrush ecosystem health, and climate change and variability.

This website is your portal to scientific research conducted by USGS Science Centers and Study Units working in the Northwest Region. Please click HERE to send us a message to let us know if you have questions or how we may better serve you.
