USGS National Research Program
The National Research Program (NRP) conducts basic and problem oriented hydrologic research in support of the mission of the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS). Results of NRP's long-term research investigations often lead to the development of new concepts, techniques, and approaches that are applicable not only to the solution of current water problems, but also to future issues that may affect the Nation's water resources. The NRP is located principally in Reston, VA, Denver, CO, and Menlo Park, CA. A Chief, Branch of Regional Research, (BRR) at each location is responsible for managing the program.
The USGS NRP in Tucson, AZ is a satellite of the Menlo Park, CA office. Our scientists occupy office space on the University of Arizona campus, and collaborate closely with University faculty, staff and students.
We have three research groups in the Tucson office:
