Data Center Description
The Northern Rocky Mountain Science Center (NOROCK) is part of the North Central Area of the Central Region of the USGS. Scientists from the Center work in the northern Rocky Mountains of the United States and throughout the western U.S. Many of our scientists work throughout the world on issues as diverse as global climate change, aquatic ecology, wildlife diseases, bison ecology, and large carnivores. We work with partners from the Department of the Interior including the Bureau of Land Management, Bureau of Reclamation, National Park Service, and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. We also work in collaboration with state resource agencies throughout the western United States and other federal agencies such as the U.S. Forest Service. We are hosted by Montana State University where we jointly co-sponsor the Mountain Prairie Information Network as part of a national information network to provide timely natural resource information.
