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.
