USGS CoreCast Podcast Series-EDMAP: Training the Next Generation of Geoscientists

EDMAP: Training the Next Generation of Geoscientists

Geologic maps record the distribution of rock and soil materials at Earth's surface and help decision makers identify and protect valuable resources, avoid risks from natural hazards, and make wise land use choices.

Randy Orndorff, Associate Program Coordinator for the USGS National Cooperative Geologic Mapping Program, talks about the grant for the academic component of the USGS NCGMP called EDMAP. He explains the importance of the EDMAP program, describes some of the benefits for involved university students and professors, and describes how to apply for the grant.

This podcast produced by the U.S. Geological Survey, or USGS, accompanies my previous post today of Professional Land Surveyor News: USGS Offers $500,000 in Grants to Map the Nation, which you may also like to read.
