Cross Party Group in the Scottish Parliament on Construction will be receiving a presentation from BGS Building Stones Conservation Specialist Emily Tracey (and others) on the need for an in-depth housing condition survey to identify the true condition of Scotland’s traditional buildings (and others) and identify the most common faults.

Visit the BGS stand (25) at PROSPEX. This year we are focussing on the 21st Century Roadmap: Palaeozoic of the UKCS. The 21st Century Roadmap is a pan-industry initiative to help regenerate exploration on the UKCS in response to the Sir Ian Wood Report. After a consultation exercise (funded by DECC, Oil & Gas UK and NERC) the Palaeozoic of the UKCS was selected as one of the first projects to be implemented. The initial focus will be the Carboniferous, particularly on the flanks of the Central North Sea in an area where there has been very little exploration adjacent to the prolific oil and gas province. BGS will build on its extensive experience of working on the onshore Carboniferous, particularly for the recent shale gas reports, and will develop a tectonostratigraphic model for the Carboniferous and a series of play fairway maps and 3D models primarily based on wells and seismic data. Funding for the project will be by DECC, the industry and BGS. The NERC Innovation programme and the Oil & Gas CDT provide avenues for additional support.

The British Geological Survey is delighted to be convening this year’s AGM. As in previous years, we anticipate a strong turn-out from research students and early-career researchers, together with our knowledgeable and diverse community of academic and industry experts.
The BSRG AGM is the most important event in the BSRG calendar and is the focus for much of BSRG's activities. BSRG 2014 will include core workshops at BGS’s National Geological Repository and two days of conference at the Nottingham Conference Centre. Please see follow this link for details.
QRA 2015 Annual Discussion Meeting: "The Quaternary Geology of the North Sea basin and adjacent areas" 5th to 8th January 2015. This meeting is bringing together earth scientists and archaeologists working in North Sea and adjacent onshore areas. The themed sessions will focus on new ideas regarding the Quaternary evolution of the North Sea basin on a variety of time scales, its glacial and interglacial successions, its archaeological record of human occupation, and the recent advances in the mapping of marine habitats and their conservation. Contact Emrys Phillips, Carol Cotterill , or Margaret Stewart for further details.
This workshop constitutes the first meeting of the group members and other interested parties. It aims to identify both existing data and gaps in current research to create a meta-database. Priorities for analysis will be identified as will themes for subsequent meetings.
A detailed agenda for this meeting will follow in due course.
11th EURO-conference on Holistic rock physics: integrating theory, observation and applications in space and time.
University of Cumbria, Ambleside, Lake District, UK
Conference sessions will include fault healing/sealing, time-dependent deformation, hydration/dehydration in crustal rocks, induced seismicity, scaling relations, and fluid driven fracture mechanics. A field trip to outcrops of the Borrowdale Volcanic Group will be arranged during the conference week.
We expect to release a second circular and a conference website in January 2015. At that time we expect to provide further information, including participant fees and reduced rates for students.
