ELEGANCY
The British Geological Survey (BGS) will lead the case study to support the decarbonisation of heating for large UK cities using novel hydrogen-based technology in the recently funded ELEGANCY research project. This project is one of five supported by the UK Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) with co-funding from the EU.

ALIGN-CCUS
Researchers across Europe have come together to accelerate the development of technologies to reduce carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions. Over the next 3 years, a large project will focus on the removal of CO2 from industrial processes, the conversion of CO2 to create valuable products, such as methanol, and the safe storage of CO2 deep underground.

PreACT
Key players from Europe, Australia and the USA are joining forces to tackle the challenge of removing CO2 from the atmosphere and storing it underground in a bid to make a real difference to our future climate. The 'Pressure control and conformance management for safe and efficient CO2 storage' or ‘Pre-ACT’ project, aims to improve the cost effectiveness of safe CO2 storage.

Conceptual model of nitrate stored in the unsaturated zone.
Groundwater researchers at the British Geological Survey (BGS) have found a major store of pollution sitting in the rocks beneath our feet that could have severe global-scale consequences for our rivers, water supplies, human health and the economy.

Fugro Synergy
The Corinth Rift, located in the Gulf of Corinth in Central Greece is one of the most seismically active areas in Europe. It is here that one of the Earth’s tectonic plates is being ripped apart causing geological hazards including earthquakes. This rifting process is the focus of the International Ocean Discovery Program (IODP) Expedition 381 “Corinth Active Rift Development”.

African groundwater map
Resource development relies on geoscience data (‘geodata’). In Africa, access to useful geodata is often slow, expensive and unreliable. This discourages potential investors and leads to a slow rate of development. A pilot project is proposed in Uganda to create a Geoscience Data Portal to make ‘geodata’ freely available and stimulate economic development.

Seismic trace
A seismologist from the British Geological Survey (BGS) and another from the National Institute of Geophysics and Volcanology in Italy (INGV) met with Prince Charles in Amatrice today. The scientists were among the international team that updated him on the on-going collaboration and reconstruction efforts since the earthquake struck in August last year.

CAASM map
Scientists from the British Geological Survey and NRM Laboratories have found a novel way of using soil data to assess soil fertility. Maps show that the pattern of more acidic soils – which can reduce soil fertility – increasingly reflect geology and typical rainfall patterns across England and Wales. In recent years, less agricultural lime has been added to farmers’ fields to neutralise soil acidity.

Water overflow due to flooding
The UK has had less rainfall than usual over the winter, and the south and south-east have been particularly dry meaning that the risk of a drought is increased. New maps published by the BGS illustrate that people in the south and south-east of England are especially reliant on groundwater for their water supply and this provides some resilience to drought.
