Geophysics for critical infrastructure

The Engineering Group (EGGS) and Near-Surface Geophysics Group (NSGG) of the Geological Society and the British Geological Survey (BGS) are jointly organising this 1-day meeting aimed at industry professionals involved in geophysical investigations for critical infrastructure projects (onshore and offshore), including past or potential future end-users of geophysics (non-specialists).

Meeting aims:

  • Bring together industry and research professionals from the geophysical, geotechnical and civil engineering sectors to foster a better understanding of mutual needs and expectations
  • Highlight geophysical case studies and best practice in critical infrastructure investigations
  • Discuss implications for near-surface geophysics of the forthcoming revision to BS5930 (2015)

The Annual General Meeting of the Engineering Group will be held from 1-2pm.

Please note that online registration is required for all delegates.

Registration fees: £35 standard delegates, £25 GeolSoc Fellows, £15 students/concessions. Lunch and refreshments included.

We encourage you to register early and look forward to seeing you in July.

Helen Reeves, EGGS and Oliver Kuras, NSGG (Convenors)
