Bob Gatliff

Bob leads BGS marine geoscience research. The BGS provides a service to BEIS and the Falkland Islands Government supporting exploration and development of oil and gas. Other current research includes major programmes in carbon capture and storage (CCS) and advanced seismic techniques. The marine geology programme (MGP) is developing high-resolution maps and models of the offshore, coast and lakes, based on multibeam data. The MGP works closely with many UK marine government and research groups, and the offshore renewables industry, in resources, habitats and geohazards. The BGS is a leader in developing remotely operated drilling technology and is a lead organisation in European operations for IODP.
