3D Geology of Britain viewer — beta version

We've released a 3D version of our popular geological map viewer! Now you can dive beneath the ground surface and explore the geology beneath. We welcome comments and suggestions for improving the beta version (there's a feedback button on the viewer).

Resources from waste

BGS's role on the new RAWFILL project is to develop new geophysical approaches for characterising landfills, and is a one of eight partners from across North-West Europe that is seeking to improve our ability to mine old landfill sites to recover useful resources and reclaim valuable land.
