We are a node of the NERC Isotope Geosciences Facilities, focussed on (1) uranium-daughter geochronology (U-Pb, Th-Pb and U-Th) applied to a broad range of geoscience topics, and (2) isotope tracers (e.g., Si, Cu, Sr, Pb, U) for a range of contemporary environmental processes (e.g., biosphere mapping, hydrology, depleted uranium). We work with the UK HEI community and international partners to deliver research, method development and training.

BGS holds over 100km of drill core
As part of the move to Heriot Watt, parts of the NGR will be unavailable for short periods of time. We will post here lists of items affected.


Glasgow model
In January 2013, BGS made the central Glasgow model and released it to a network of interested people called the ASK (Accessing Subsurface Knowledge) network. The model gives other agencies, such as engineers and construction companies, a broad idea of the geology underneath Glasgow, which helps them get an idea of what lies under the ground and plan for any problems they may come across. The Glasgow Minecraft model has been based on this.

Scotland's aquifers and groundwater bodies report cover
This report, published in 2015, was written jointly by BGS and the Scottish Environment Protection Agency (SEPA). The report is written in the form of a manual for those with some technical groundwater (hydrogeological) knowledge, but also includes summaries for non-specialists.


Inorganic laboratory
We undertake a wide range of research in the team, and work closely in collaboration with key university partners. Our research has a wide base across health and environmental quality, both within the UK and internationally. We also provide analytical services to other Directorates within BGS, and to external organisations.
