Allegheny GeoQuest specializes in geological solutions to environmental and hydrological problems. Our network of experts cover a wide range of geological disciplines.


  • Mineralogy
  • Geochemistry
  • Structural geology
  • Sedimentology
  • Carbonate geology
  • Stratigraphy
  • Costal geology
  • Fluvial geology
  • Invertebrate paleo
  • Paleoecology
  • Petroleum geology
  • Seismic interpretation
  • Appalachian geology
  • Appalachian gas plays



Our aim in Allegheny GeoQuest is to provide cost-effective and reliable solutions for water management projects.  Our mode of operation relies on expert consultants, managers, GIS specialists, computer scientists, hydrogeologists, and field geologists that can provide integrated, scalable solutions to groundwater and surface water problems. We use solution models based on sound peer-reviewed science. Our own proprietary General Integrative Watershed model (GIW), for example, is based on a holistic Landscape Ecology approach utilizing geochemical mass spec analysis, lotic biomonitoring, watershed geology and anthropogenic land uses to define, manage and solve water quality mitigation and sustainability problems.

Educational Services

AGQ organizes educational geologic field trips. These all inclusive educational outings are accompanied by docents familiar with the local and regional cultural, ecological and geological environments. AGQ is planning on several local and international field trips in the near future. Please consult our home page for information.
