The Iowa Geological Survey (IGS) is a recognized leader in the geologic and hydrogeologic sciences. IGS is building on its rich scientific heritage, while serving Iowans through research, education, and outreach. In 2014, the IGS joined IIHR—Hydroscience & Engineering (IIHR), a research institute within the University of Iowa’s College of Engineering. IIHR and IGS researchers are working together to strengthen the research, education, and service programs that have been the foundation of each organization. The classification, management, and conservation of the state’s geological resources are vital for Iowa’s economic stability and growth. As a reliable source of information on water, mineral, rock, soil, and energy resources, the IGS can help resolve environmental issues and provide guidance for all stakeholders.
