Prof. Melanie Leng
A review article on the use of isotope geochemistry in lake sediments as a means of understanding past climates remains one of the top downloaded articles in the environmental change journal Quaternary Science Reviews.


Dragon's back perspective
Our research reveals that the changing shape of a hillslope can reveal whether a landscape is growing due to erosion driven by tectonic processes beneath, or is in a state of decay.


Mike Stephenson
Mike's new book 'Returning Carbon To Nature' looks at carbon capture and storage as part of the carbon cycle and climate change, and at coal and its place in future energy.


BGS roundel
The British Geological Survey (BGS), along with other centres in the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC), has been assessed to determine the excellence and impact of its research.


Groundwater modelling
We are seeking the views and metadata requirements of environmental modellers, model users, and those providing data sets for use in modelling.


Sustainable Drainage Systems (SuDS)
A BGS SuDS paper has won a highly commended award at the 2013 Emerald Literati Network Awards for Excellence.


The Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) has approved a grant of £1.2 m to a UK team including researchers at the British Geological Survey (BGS) to investigate the influence of past climatic changes on human evolution in Africa.

The British Geological Surveys owner Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) is calling for evidence on potential ownership and governance structures for its research centres.


Patrick Bell accepting award
The Esri UK Annual Conference 2013 was held on May 21st. Patrick Bell, representing the BGS smartphone development team, was awarded 'Best Conference Presentation' for his talk in the mobile track entitled 'Geology apps, maps and augmented reality'.


Core logging
A new initiative to visualise the subsurface of Singapore is underway at the British Geological Survey (BGS). The BGS is working with the Singapore Building and Construction Authority (BCA) to build a 3D geological model of Singapore to help make the best future use of underground space. Amongst lots of different activities to support this work, the BGS was recently involved in an industry focused event at the BCA Academy in Singapore from 16-18 April 2013.


Nature Geoscience cover May 2013
A new 1000-year Antarctic Peninsula climate reconstruction shows that summer ice melting has intensified almost ten-fold, and mostly since the mid 20th century. Summer ice melt affects the stability of Antarctic ice shelves and glaciers. The research, which includes Carol Arrowsmith as a co-author from the British Geological Survey went online this week in the journal Nature Geoscience.

Isotope laboratory analysis on Richard III's teeth
On 4 February 2013 the University of Leicester announced that the human remains uncovered beneath a Leicester car park in August 2012 are 'beyond reasonable doubt' those of King Richard III. During the study, Leicester University agreed to allow the NERC Isotope Geosciences Laboratory (NIGL) to take small samples of bone and teeth from the skeleton in order to further investigate the King's diet, movements and exposure to pollution.


Jonathan Stone
BGS/BUFI-funded PhD student Jonathan Stone has won I'm a scientist, get me out of here! Jon, a volcanologist studying at the University of East Anglia, won the Technetium Zone of the March 2013 competition.


Sustainable Drainage Systems (SuDS)
The British Geological Survey's Infiltration SuDS Map won the 2013 Sustainable Drainage and Flood Management Initiative of the Year category at the Water Industry Achievement Awards; as announced at the awards ceremony held on 21 March in Birmingham.


Transport geotechnics and geophysics
A three-year programme of engagement and collaboration between the academic community, engineering industries and the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC), has borne fruit with the announcement of £4.7 million funding for new engineering research.


Quaternary Science Reviews Cover
Isotope geochemistry is increasingly an essential part of environmental and climate change research and now routinely contributes to our understanding of many critical environmental problems, which span the whole of Earth system science and not least in palaeolimnology and limnogeology.


3D geological model
The University of Birmingham, in collaboration with the British Geological Survey and others, has been awarded a £5.9 million research grant to improve the management of underground assets such as buried pipes and cables.


The Volcano Global Risk Identification and Analysis Project (VOGRIPA) project is an international collaboration led by the University of Bristol with partners including the BGS, the Smithsonian Institution and the Geological Survey of Japan. VOGRIPA aims to develop accessible, searchable global volcanic hazards databases


In a new report by the Royal Academy of Engineering into space weather and its potential impact, UK science and industry experts have analysed the likely impact of the most extreme space weather on technology.
