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.

White Ribbon
BGS own and operate a small 9 m survey catamaran called the White Ribbon.


 Satellite interferometric study of ground motions in the 1990s in the South Wales Coalfield
BGS tested a new image processing method that can detect very small changes in the height of the land surface.


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.


Laser scanning
Geomatics is the science of gathering, storing, processing and delivering spatially related information. BGS has pioneered the use of ground-based (terrestrial) techniques for a variety of geoscientific applications since 1999.


Glacier in Iceland
BGS scientists have revealed that glaciers may abandon their snouts, as they readjust to new climate conditions.


The hazard products team aims to develop new and innovative data products that deliver geoscientific information to a range of users in an accessible form.


Tsunami sediment
Tsunamis from submarine landslides have struck our shores in the distant past, so BGS is participating in the NERC Arctic landslides project, which aims to better understand the hazard from these events.


Fluid rock reactions
BGS has a large science facility with many different laboratories covering a wide range of topics. One of the areas being carbon capture and storage (CCS), that the fluid process research laboratories (FPRL) work on.


Offshore surveying
BGS scientists and engineers joined a team of university researchers on a mission to recover sediment from the continental shelf in the Celtic, Irish and Malin Seas as part of the BRITICE-CHRONO project funded by the Natural Environment Research Council.


Vatnajökull ice cap viewed from the south.
The Bárðarbunga volcanic system, in central-eastern Iceland, comprises a central volcano rising to 2009 m a.s.l. and a fissure system. It is in the Eastern Volcanic Zone and is partly covered by the Vatnajökull ice cap.


GeoSocial icon
GeoSocial is a tool currently being developed for displaying geoscience-related posts from social media sites such as Twitter. Social media provides a different channel for gathering potentially useful scientific information from the public.


Afar rift
Studies into volcanism across Ethiopia, Kenya and Tanzania.
