Further information and an abstract of the lecture.
The UK has a legacy of civil infrastructure assets that form vital components of the UK interdependent infrastructure system including within transportation corridors and service (energy and water) networks. Many of those individual assets are ageing — and sometimes failing.
The UK infrastructure sector faces the daunting challenge of maintaining and modernising the systems on which we depend. This BGS-CIRIA conference will showcase emerging techniques and technologies to capture infrastructure asset location and condition data. Delegates will learn, via case study presentations, how various clients and major projects have utilised innovative data management to inform asset management planning.

The Anthropocene: a new chapter in Earth history
The lecture will be on Monday 4th March 2013 at 6 pm in Lecture Theatre 1 Bennett Building.
Human civilization has grown around the stable shorelines and climate, and amid the diverse biosphere of, the Holocene Epoch: the latest of many interglacial phases of the Quaternary Ice Age, and the one that the created the world we live in.
Admission is free, but by ticket only. If you would like to attend, please contact Gail Andrews in the Geology Department by e-mail at email@example.com.
The talk is preceded by refreshments in the Geology Department from 5.30 pm.
Hugh’s presentation is titled: ‘The ASK Network: Examining the development of a data gathering and transfer mechanism to improve data collection and use for reduced site investigation and development costs’.
Plus a BGS stand promoting BGS research, Earth Data Models and OneGeology.
In 2012, the national theme for AAC is 'Sports, Games and the Olympics', so we will be exploring the links between fun, leisure, sporting achievement and the earth sciences.
There will be displays, talks and activities for adults and children, including:

Prof Mike Stephenson, BGS Head of Energy, will chair the Shale Gas World conference on 27 - 29 November 2012 in Warsaw, Poland. This comprehensive event from Europe's capital of shale gas will cover all aspects of shale gas including operations, technology, geology, policy, and environment.
Places are limited. If you wish to attend, please register directly using this link.
We will be in the poster exhibition where you will be able to find out more about this valuable resource for planning hydrocarbon exploration on the UKCS. Visit the BGS stand (C18) for information on our research consortia, marine mapping, shale gas, IODP, carbon capture and storage and 3D demos.
