The United States Geological Survey (USGS), Eastern Energy Resources Science Center (EERSC) addresses national and global energy geoscience issues and conducts interdisciplinary research on energy systems. The Center provides earth-science information and interpretations essential to building a framework for the identification and assessment of economically stable and environmentally sound resources of petroleum, natural gas, and coal.
In addition, the Center addresses the environmental, economic, and human health impacts of energy production and studies unconventional resources including gas hydrates, geothermal resources, uranium, oil shale, and bitumen and heavy oil.
The USGS is a bureau within the United States Department of the Interior (DOI). The Eastern Energy Resources Science Center, one of two Energy Centers, conducts scientific investigations to support the Energy Resources Program at the U.S. Geological Survey in Reston, Virginia.
