Geologic Investigations Program

The Geologic Investigations Program, directed by Ed Osborne, conducts basic geologic and coastal research, monitors and investigates geologic hazards, and directs the geologic mapping program. It also maintains and manages the core and well sample warehouse and sample viewing facility, the paleontology collection, the library, the Publications Sales Office, and publishes Geological Survey of Alabama and State Oil and Gas Board reports. The Program includes three sections: Geologic Mapping and Hazards, directed by Ed Osborne; Coastal Resources, directed by Steve Jones; and Resources Information, directed by Rusty Ward. The Geologic Mapping and Hazards section is located on the ground floor of Mary Harmon Bryant Hall on the University of Alabama campus. The Coastal Resources and Resources Information sections are in the adjacent Walter B. Jones Hall.
