About the Iowa Geological Survey:
The Iowa Geological Survey (IGS) has a long and illustrious history in the state, beginning in 1855, when legislation proposed by Governor James W. Grimes provided for a geological survey of the state, which was led by State Geologist James Hall. It was the start of great things for the state of Iowa, with its many geological resources. Today, the continuing examination of Iowa’s geology by IGS geologists provides valuable interpretations to science, as well as important information and direction to the state’s resource assessment, environmental protection, and economic development.
