Building on a 50-year-old partnership, NASA and the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) are expanding their cooperation with the relocation of one of the largest USGS science groups in the western United States to the NASA Ames Research Center campus in Silicon Valley.

Both agencies are looking forward to reinforcing their close partnerships to study our planet from orbit to core. The possibilities enabled by bringing together scientists and engineers from the nation's top agencies for earth, space and aeronautic sciences are enormous.
