The British Geological Survey has been working with the UK Hydrographic Office and SeaZone Solutions Ltd to create an up-to-date digital map of sea bed character and bedforms, a compilation of bathymetry, sediments and geology, for use in online mapping, modelling and integration into a geographical information system (GIS).
The launch event will take place at the British Geological Survey, Keyworth, Nottingham. Lunch will be provided.

Accurate measurement of pollution plays a central role in the environmental sector, forming the basis of assessments to determine the potential risks arising from air pollution, contaminated soils, wastes and waters.
Reliable and rapid assessment of the nature and concentration of pollutants can reduce the costs associated with its management by facilitating and accelerating the assessment of associated risk, the identification of appropriate treatment methodologies and subsequent monitoring needs.
Responding to this and to support innovation and technology development to take advantage of the potential #350m p.a. market, the Environmental KTN is organizing a one-day conference to discuss advances in Rapid Measurement Tools (RMT).
The conference deliberately aims to create a dialogue between industry and academia within the environmental sector, but also invites delegates from other sectors such as defence, space, automotive and medical, whose technology may be applicable within the environmental sector.

The Discovery Day is the North Devon AONB's largest public event. It has attracted up to 2,000 people and enjoyed a high level of support from partners and interest groups, with a broad range of exhibitions and activities and notable speakers, including presenters from the BBC Coast programme. This year the theme is 'our cultural landscape' and the interrelationship between people and the landscape today and over time. The British Geological Survey will be attending, with exhibitions and demonstrations explaining the work of Hartland Magnetic Observatory. Geologist Elaine Burt from BGS Exeter will also be there, giving an insight into the fascinating Geology of the Devon and the South West.
The venue is the Milky Way Theme Park (A39 near Clovelly), the date is Sunday 16th March 2008.
15 - 15 Mar 2008
By popular demand, Rockwatch, the national club for young geologists, will be back to help BGS celebrate National Science & Engineering Week on Saturday 15 March 2008 at our Keyworth headquarters near Nottingham. This event, packed with hands-on activities, will run from 10am to 4pm.
