Sustainable Drainage Systems (SuDS) diagram
A new digital map of the UK, aimed at helping planners, developers and local authorities reduce urban flooding, is released today by the British Geological Survey (BGS).


Geological stopwatch
New research has revealed that some events in Earth's history happened more recently than previously thought. Scientists from the British Geological Survey and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, publishing this week in the journal …


Exploration for oil
You are probably aware that the UK is an active member of the Integrated Ocean Drilling Program (IODP) but has never participated as a member of the International Continental Scientific Drilling Program (ICDP). As geologists and geoscientists …

Scientists have produced a new free map app of the soils of Great Britain. The app, my Soil, also enables the general public to upload information about the soil where they live, helping to improve our knowledge about the properties of soils …


Salisbury Crags with Edinburgh Castle in the background (P545612)
Stewart Stevenson MSP, Minister for Environment and Climate Change, launched Scotland's Geodiversity Charter today in Edinburgh. The charter recognises Scotland's geodiversity as an integral and vital part of our environment, economy, heritage and future sustainable development, to be safeguarded and managed appropriately for this and future generations.


Are we in for a summer of cracked buildings? It all depends on the weather. Research from the British Geological Survey (BGS) has highlighted the importance of rainfall and temperature on the incidence of clay shrink-swell, a precursor to …


Assessment of CO2 influence on plant species at the ASGARD site, University of Nottingham
The public put experts to the test in Dublin. European scientists are set to explain the likely impacts of CO2 storage to the public in Dublin this weekend. The public will be encouraged to question the experts directly with the aim of improving the understanding and communication of the technologies that are likely to be used.


OneGeology logo
One of the 'missing pieces' of the world's geological map, the Russian Federation and its neighbours, is now available to view online – over 22 million square kilometers, or 15 per cent of the Earth's total land surface!


Ice shelves
Results published this week by a team of polar scientists from Britain, Australia and France adds a new dimension to our understanding of Antarctic Peninsula climate change and the likely causes of the break-up of its ice shelves.


Space Weather
Space weather is an emerging threat to our technological way of life. With the Sun expected to reach its 11 year peak of activity in 2013, are we aware and prepared for this threat, does anyone really know what will happen?


Geothermal map
Did you know that you could heat your home by tapping into the Earth’s thermal store using Ground Source Heat Pump (GSHP) technology?
