The MBMG Geohazards Program has a mission to catalog, assess, and monitor geologic hazards across the State of Montana. The Geohazards Program strives to provide information on active faults, earthquakes, and landslides, and makes these data available to the scientific community, policy makers, and the public.
The MBMG provides research and information on Montana’s active faults that demonstrate fault activity during recent geologic time (Quaternary faults) and have the potential to generate damaging earthquakes.
The Earthquake Studies Office monitors, analyzes, and reports on Montana earthquakes and makes these data available to the scientific community and the public.
The Landslide Hazards Program aims to identify, map, and categorize landslide areas across the State of Montana.
The Montana Bureau of Mines and Geology (MBMG) at Montana Tech hosted the Montana Geohazards Workshop on April 28, 2022.
The Montana Bureau of Mines and Geology (MBMG) is organizing the 2023 Montana Geohazards Workshop held by the Disaster and Emergency Services office in Fort Harrison on April 26-27, 2023.
