UNESCO geoparks logo
UNESCO Global Geoparks are single, unified geographical areas where sites of international geological heritage are holistically managed for protection, education and sustainable development.


Cityscape and underneath the ground
Many cities are developing 'future city' programmes where knowledge dissemination, cooperation, policy reform and urban design run in parallel with big data and smart technologies. We are working with those at the forefront of future cities thinking to ensure that urban geoscience research and data is embedded in this process and the value of the ground beneath cities is realised.


Rachel sampling
Updated information on Vale of Pickering environmental baseline monitoring. New realtime seismicity data and preliminary radon and soil gas results.


Maremap map
The BGS is working with The Crown Estate to understand seabed development opportunities across UK Continental Shelf, by creating a seabed constraints analysis derived from new Geological Factor maps.

Further periods of intense or prolonged rainfall could potentially lead to localised groundwater flooding.


BGS logo to colour in
The Cartographics team at BGS have been busy thinking how we can brighten up the dull, dark month of January after the Christmas cheer. In keeping with the current craze for mindful colouring, we've created a series of maps and images, using our geological data, that you can colour in. Grab your pencils and start feeler calmer, less stressed and more at peace. Share your creations with us.
