Mike Stephenson
In shale gas exploitation, most people are more worried about what goes on at the surface than deep underground. If you’ve never seen a drilling rig or a frack truck, it’s hard to imagine what it might be like to live up close to a fracking operation, but many people believe that shale gas fracking on a large scale counts as industrialization of the landscape. This article looks at the ground-level effects that people near fracking sites might experience.

BGS Research Fellowship Programme
BGS participated on behalf of CO2GeoNet at the International Scientific Conference "Our Common Future under Climate Change" held in Paris 7 – 10 July ahead of the Conference of the Parties which will also be held in Paris later this year (COP 21). BGS presented on assured capacity and safe geological storage of carbon dioxide (CO2) during a parallel session titled "Negative emissions for climate change stabilisation and the role of CO2 geological storage".


BGS's Andy Chadwick and Paul Williamson explain how interaction between continuous trend with natural climate cycles produces the observed stepped pattern of global warming.

Welcome to Dr Clement Uguna who has joined BGS as a Research Fellow within Organic Geochemistry and the Centre for Environmental Geochemistry.


Mike's book, Shale Gas and Fracking
Mike Stephenson's new book 'Shale gas and fracking: the science behind the controversy' looks at the geology and environmental aspects of shale gas from the European and American perspective, debunking the ‘bad science’ on both sides of the argument and making clear the science that does matter so that people can make an informed choice. The science that does matter is peer-reviewed and published and therefore independent.
