The Geologic Investigations Program, directed by Sandy Ebersole, conducts basic geologic and coastal research, monitors and investigates geologic hazards, and directs the geologic mapping program. It also maintains the paleontology collection. The Program includes three foci: Geologic Mapping, directed by Dan Irvin; Hazards, directed by Sandy Ebersole; and Coastal Resources, directed by Steve Jones.
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.
