Make-a-map is an interactive geological map of the British Isles. It is intended for amateur geologists, students and teachers looking for an overview of the geology of the British Isles.


Sampling water supplies in Cornwall
Households were visited by BGS teams in November 2013, following an invite to take part in the biomonitoring study through direct mailing and follow-up calls. More than 120 households and more than 200 volunteers from across Cornwall participated. Since then, the samples collected have undergone a series of measurements for each of the sample types. The measurements for water data were reported in June 2014 to the households, with biological and soil samples to be reported later in 2014.


Collapsible ground
These new geohazard notes ask: What is collapsible ground? Why does it occur? What is compressible ground? What problems can it cause?


GISGroundwater logo
BGS GISGroundwater is an add-in to ArcGIS that models the depth to groundwater beneath the land surface. For aquifers (permeable water bearing rocks) that are open to the atmosphere (unconfined aquifers) it calculates the elevation of the groundwater table. For aquifers that are confined by overlying impermeable rock it calculates the elevation of the surface (the level groundwater will rise to in a borehole).


This Research Report presents a reviewed and revised lithostratigraphical nomenclature for the Sherwood Sandstone Group (?latest Permian to Mid Triassic).The SSG is composed mainly of brown, red, buff, greenish grey and yellow sandstones of fluvial or aeolian origin. Three options were considered and the ‘clean slate’ option chosen. The constituent formation names proposed are: Helsby Sandstone, Wilmslow Sandstone, Chester, Moira, and Hopwas Breccia formations.

The Africa Groundwater Atlas and Literature Archive aims to provide detailed and appropriate information on African groundwater resources to a range of stakeholders. The availability and accessibility of robust groundwater data and information is a major constraint to developing groundwater resources across Africa, and is an additional barrier to undertaking research. This project is funded by the UPGro programme.

Addressing the impacts of climate change on engineered slopes for infrastructure


In response to the work of the Natural Hazards Partnership, the BGS has prepared a number of Geohazard notes to provide relevant summary information for some of the geohazards that could affect the UK.


Sinkhole in Ripon
Updated content regarding sinkholes, including: Increased incidence of sinkholes and subsidence collapse features in 2014.


Mike Ellis
Professor Michael Ellis has been announced as the first Chair of the new Strategic Programme Advisory Group for NERC.


Groundwater flooding
Groundwater levels in some regions of the UK are currently at record highs. This has resulted in ongoing groundwater flooding, particularly in the south and south-west of the UK.


The sinkhole that formed in the middle of the M2 on 11 February 2014 is situated about 350 metres to the south-east of the village of Erriottwood.


Melanie Leng has been nominated to represent the International Continental scientific Drilling Program on the International Ocean Discovery Program/European Consortium for Ocean Research Drilling outreach task force.
