The USGS is a science organization that provides impartial information on the health of our ecosystems and environment, the natural hazards that threaten us, the natural resources we rely on, the impacts of climate and land-use change, and the core science systems that help us provide timely, relevant, and useable information.

The USGS maintains a variety of webcams across the U.S. These webcams provide valuable research information and data to the USGS scientists, the National Weather Service, emergency managers, and area residents to evaluate near, real-time conditions during natural hazard events (most webcams refresh every 5 - 20 minutes).
