Groundhog desktop
BGS Groundhog Desktop GSIS (desktop geoscientific information system) is a graphical software tool developed by the environmental modelling directorate of BGS for the display of geological and geospatial information such as interpreted (correlated) geological cross sections, maps and boreholes.


Seismic trace
BGS and partners at Durham University used satellite imagery to map over 3000 landslides triggered by the M7.8 Gorkha earthquake in Nepal on 25th April 2015. These maps are helping the relief efforts.

Groundwater levels sample
Two new digital products are now available: Groundwater levels and Hydrogeological Maps of Scotland.


Eddleston model
Built by BGS in GSI3D V3 and Gocad and subsequently converted to 3D pdf, this model covers about 0.23 km2 of the floodplain and valley side of the catchment of the Eddleston Water, west of the A703, north of Peebles in the Southern Uplands of Scotland.


Wellies in the rain
BGS and the Environment Agency (EA) have worked together to produce these revised estimates of the number of properties that are in areas with a groundwater flood hazard, with the aim of providing better estimates in a similar way to those prepared for flooding from rivers, the sea and surface water.


Geology globe
We have had some problems lately that have been due to teething issues with our new server. Hopefully these are now resolved. We appreciate your patience and apologise for the inconvenience. The web team.


Red Kite House
Sustainable drainage systems (SuDS) are drainage solutions that provide an alternative to the direct channelling of surface water through networks of pipes and sewers to nearby watercourses. The aims of SuDS are to reduce surface water flooding, improve water quality and enhance the amenity and biodiversity value of the environment. The observatory at Red Kite House has been established to identify how these SuDS schemes impact on groundwater.


Sampling dissolved gases
Since the beginning of the national methane baseline survey in 2012, a total of 155 new groundwater methane samples have been collected and analysed from five areas. The latest of these is Cumbria and Northumberland.


Dr Ash Parton and Prof Adrian Parker (lower figure) examining the alluvial fan deposits in the wadi Al Sibetah quarry, Al Ain, UAE
Research by BGS in collaboration with colleagues at Oxford Brookes University suggests that periodic changes in rainfall linked to changes in global climate, in particular shifts in the Indian Ocean monsoon, created several opportunities for humans to migrate across the interior of Arabia.

Annual science review 2013-2014
The 2013-2014 Annual Science Review is now available. Topics include: Responsible use of natural resources; Managing environmental change; Resilience to earth hazards; Finance; Human resources.


MEC logo
We are a partner in the Midlands Energy Consortium along with the Universities of Birmingham, Loughborough, Nottingham and Warwick. The Midlands Energy Consortium is a collaboration in energy research and training.


3D visualisation
Developing tools and techniques for virtual field reconnaissance and visualisation of geoscientific data


DiSECCS logo
Diagnostic seismic toolbox for the efficient control of CO2 storage (DiSECCS) is developing non-invasive methods to monitor underground Carbon Dioxide storage sites. The seismic tools will identify pressure build-up related to injection of CO2, predict mechanical instability and verify site performance over large areas. Assisting in a better understanding of these key issues will help to instil wider public confidence in CO2 storage.
