The FutureThames booklet highlights some of the key challenges affecting the Thames basin and how geoscience might be able to help address them. It is a useful starting point to encourage the use of geoscience as part of an integrated solution.
Economic Valuation Reports explain the impact of integrated 3D geological modelling, citing examples from the Thames Catchment.
This study aims to map pollution in the Thames estuary and understand the processes that influence pollution distribution, links to land use and the risk to human health and ecosystems.

The geochemical baselines team are undertaking an ambitious soil sampling survey within the entire Greater London Authority area to help identify potentially harmful elements in urban areas and to inform local councils, developers and the general public of any environmental or health risks.
This study presents a statistical model (using multiple linear regression) of the relationship between surface geology, hydrogeological units and baseflow index (BFI).
Almost all droughts have surface water and groundwater components, but their relative importance can vary greatly. This study assesses the role that groundwater plays during drought conditions in the UK.
Focusses on making geoscience information more accessible, relevant and understandable to the wide range of users in the sustainable regeneration and development of this region.
The 3D geology of London and the Thames Gateway: a modern approach to geological surveying and its relevance in the urban environment.
A research programme into how water enters, is stored within, and is discharged from rivers in three groundwater-dominated catchments, including the Pang/Lambourn catchment in Berkshire, within the Thames basin.
A web-based geographical information system (GIS) that provides online access to minerals-related data and information, including the Thames basin region.
