Florida Geological Survey for Sinkholes
The Florida Geological Survey (FGS) is an office dedicated to collecting, interpreting, sharing and maintaining geological data. The office's goal is to understand the state's natural resources, including sinkhole development and repairs. This information helps us understand how sinkholes are formed and which parts of the state are most susceptible to them.
Information in the Geological Survey
The FGS is a public resource housing a wide range of information about sinkhole activity in Florida. Some of the information it contains includes:
- Subsidence incident reports
- Geological and geotechnical investigation procedures
- Sinkhole type, distribution and development
- Map of Florida's sinkholes
- Sinkhole frequently asked questions
This resource can be beneficial for people with any questions regarding sinkholes. If you are considering purchasing a home or renting an apartment in Florida, you can look at the incidence map to see which parts of the state are most prone to sinkhole activity. If you want to learn how engineering firms determine whether or not a specific area has sinkhole activity, you can find it here.
