Eskdalemuir Observatory
The Eskdalemuir Observatory, a centre for geophysical and meteorological measurement that has been collecting data for over 100 years, has now received special status from the World Meteorological Organisation (WMO).


Open data
Geoscientists have launched an open data source from a world-first network of observatories investigating the underground, designed to put scientific evidence into the heart of decision making on the natural environment.


Open data
The UK Geoenergy Observatories will be world-leading research facilities, opening up our understanding of the world beneath our feet as never before. Based in Cardiff, Cheshire and Glasgow, they will be scientific test beds in three locations that have very different geological characteristics.


African groundwater map
Groundwater experts from BGS have contributed to a new report that shows the groundwater, a vital source of water for drinking and irrigation across sub-Saharan Africa, is resilient to climate variability and change.


Scientists from the UK and Norway have produced a 160,000 year timeline of methane emissions from the Arctic seabed and linked them to changing ice volumes in the Arctic.


Rear Admiral Tim Lowe, CBE visits the Lyell Centre
The British Geological Survey (BGS) was proud to welcome Rear Admiral Tim Lowe, CBE to the Lyell Centre in Edinburgh on 15 August 2019.


British Geological Survey (BGS)
New research from the University of Nottingham, supported by the British Geological Survey (BGS) and published in Nature Communications, has found through new, innovative techniques that resources within the Bowland Shale Formation could be lower than first thought.


Hand dug well site
Installing more boreholes to tap underground water will improve rural Ethiopian communities' resilience to drought, according to a new report.


BGS logo
The British Geological Survey (BGS) confirmed today (26th August 2019) that a 2.9ML earthquake was recorded at 07.30 UTC (08.30 BST). This was a trailing event induced by the hydraulic fracturing at Preston New Road, near Blackpool, Lancashire. It is to date the highest recorded event at the Preston New Road site since operations began in October 2018.

The British Geological Survey has shown that groundwater resources may have a significant role in securing future water resources under conditions of climate change.


Glasgow geothermal
The only way the UK can reach its target of net zero emissions by 2050 is by taking a better look below the surface, say experts from the British Geological Survey (BGS) and geologists from across the UK.


Compasses at Greenwich will point to true north for the first time in 360 years at some point within the next two weeks.


Plattform Leicher Kopie
Mud taken from deep within Europe’s oldest lake is helping scientists understand how Mediterranean rainfall has varied over the past 1.4 million years, and how it could change in the future.


Lyell Centre
Robots, marine creatures and dinosaurs will all be featuring at Doors Open Day at the Lyell Centre in Edinburgh on Saturday 28 September 2019.


Dr Karen Hanghøj
The British Geological Survey (BGS) is set to welcome Dr Karen Hanghøj this week, as she prepares to mark her permanent start in the UK with attendance at the AAPG Energy Transition (ET) Forum on Wednesday (16th October).


Cardiff Urban Geo Observatory
Natural water in the ground below us could be used as a low-carbon heat source in many UK towns and cities, new research from the British Geological Survey (BGS) says. The public research body is now calling for more research to understand how geothermal technologies could be scaled up across the UK.


BGS logo
December 2019 marks a decade since the British Geological Survey (BGS) launched OpenGeoscience, an online portal which has made a vast array of open UK geological data searchable and more accessible for everyone to use.


If you’ve ever wondered how Santa visits millions of homes across the globe in just one night, it’s because he has a little help from science. And the good news is, he won’t get lost on his travels this year - provided that he follows his compass home.


Prof John Rees
Professor John Rees has been appointed by the British Geological Survey (BGS) to be its new Chief Scientist for Multi-Hazards and Resilience.
