Coastal landslide
We are still receiving new reports and processing landslide data, but initial figures indicate that there was a four- to five-fold increase in the number of landslides for July and December when compared with previous years


Whitby Landslides, North Yorkshire
The BGS Landslide Response Team received reports of two landslides on the east side of Whitby, North Yorkshire, following above average rainfall that affected most of the UK from April-November 2012.


SIGMAmobile logo
BGS< SIGMAmobile is a field data capture system designed to run on rugged tablet PCs with integrated GPS units, which also now has additional tools to clean the field linework to make professional quality map outputs.


We have recently updated our Groundwater flooding FAQs to help land planners, developers and home buyers make better informed decisions.


Measuring unstable parameters with field meters while sampling groundwater.
The BGS already has some information on methane in groundwaters for a number of UK aquifers, collected since the 1980s. The current survey began in 2012, with initial sampling campaigns in aquifers in Lancashire and Cheshire south Wales and Hampshire, Sussex and Kent.

BritGeothermal logo
BritGeothermal is a mechanism for technical collaboration and cooperation in geothermal research within the UK. It aims to develop a greater understanding of UK geothermal resources and to research their exploitation so that geothermal energy can become part of the energy mix.


Core box S30000
In late October 2012, the relocation of UKCS cores from Gilmerton (Edinburgh) to the National Geoscience Data Centre Core Store, at Keyworth, was completed.


EA 3D model
Accessing Subsurface Knowledge (ASK) is an innovative subsurface data and knowledge exchange network between public and private sectors that is focused around Glasgow. ASK aims to improve the understanding of subsurface conditions via the free flow of data and knowledge that underpins successful construction and regeneration projects.


Virtual borehole
This virtual borehole and section viewer allows you to drill virtual boreholes or draw virtual cross-sections through a geological model in five selected areas of the UK reflecting a range of geological settings.

Ground source heat pump (GSHP) systems exploit the temperature difference between above-ground (air) temperatures and below-ground (including groundwater) temperatures for heating or cooling demands.


New York skyscrapers
Human driven biological, chemical and physical changes to the Earth's system are so great, rapid and distinct that they may characterise an entirely new epoch – The Anthropocene.


GeoBritain Map
The British Isles host a wide range of fascinating geology providing secret walks through breathtaking scenery, literary inspiration, idyllic holiday destinations and the building materials for historic monuments. Use the GeoBritain map to browse geology groups, museums, discovery centres, geoparks and other important geological sites open to the public.


Baseline groundwater sampling
The Eddleston Water Floodplain Project is a joint effort by a number of organisations to investigate and reduce the impact of flooding in the Eddleston catchment, a large part of which has been supported and funded by the Scottish Government.


By citing datasets in the same manner as journal articles, credit can be assigned to the dataset creators and discoverability is improved.


Paper records
The British Geological Survey (BGS) maintains a wealth of data, information and other materials gathered throughout the history of the organisation. We manage such geoscience data for the long-term benefit of all and endeavour to make the data available online and without charge where possible.


Earthwise logo
The new book, launched by the National Forest Company and the British Geological Survey, illustrates through walks and a simple geological map how everything about The National Forest stems from the underlying rocks.


Moray coast and Inverness 3D model
Since 2007 the BGS has been developing 3D models to capture and visualise the complexity of both the superficial and bedrock geology. These models will enable planning authorities and regulators to address land-use issues, particularly around Inverness.

Rest and Be Thankful (A83) Landslide, 2012
Following a period of heavy rain, on 1 August 2012 a debris flow landslide occurred along the A83 Rest and Be Thankful pass (Argyll and Bute, Scotland). The BGS Landslide Response Team made a visit to the landslide on 2 August 2012 to record the failure.
