Bowland shale gas study area
The British Geological Survey in association with DECC has completed an estimate for the resource (gas-in-place) of shale gas in part of central Britain in an area between Wrexham and Blackpool in the west, and Nottingham and Scarborough in the east.


Royal Society Chartermark
Visitors to the Royal Society Summer Science Exhibition in London from 2 – 7 July will not only learn how glaciers flow forward and melt back but how they help us travel across time as well.

Tetrapod World: early evolution and diversification
To explain how life evolved from fish-like vertebrates 360 million years ago, scientists from the British Geological Survey (BGS) and its partners are drilling a deep borehole at a location near Berwick-upon-Tweed, Northumberland.


Arctic meltown
New work published today, by scientists from the British Geological Survey (BGS), shows how the very rapid retreat of Iceland's glaciers during the last 10 years – unprecedented in over 80 years of measurements - is due to a combination of interlinked processes driven by warmer summers.
