How can rocks keep us warm in winter?
This event explains some cool facts about rocks that means there’s a store of heat right beneath our feet!
We’ll discover the many ways that this store can be tapped into so we can heat (and cool) our own homes, schools and offices.
FREE interactive talk suitable for all ages
So what will happen when news breaks of a massive Coronal Mass Ejection (CME) on the Sun? Join us to unravel the jargon & discover if we’ll see power blackouts or electrifying auroras!
FREE talk hosted by the British Geological Survey.
The Extractive Industry Geology (EIG) Conference is a biennial event for sharing knowledge, scientific research and good practice in the field of applied geology within the UK minerals industry. The next EIG conference is 5-8 September 2012 at Edgehill University, Ormskirk, Lancashire. It is aimed at geo-professionals associated with the extraction of industrial rocks and minerals, including those involved in geology, hydrogeology, geotechnical engineering, restoration and after-use, reserves and resources and quarry design and planning. The conference includes 2-days of presentations plus pre- and post-conference field trips. BGS geologists will be presenting on a range of current minerals research including marine resources, critical metals, modelling environmental impact, resource management and geophysical prospecting.
If you are interested in presenting a paper please contact Clive Mitchell.
The conference programme includes two full days of presentations and workshops on September 4 and 5 with a conference meal on the evening of September 4 and a field trip on September 6:
BGS is attending this conference with a stand showcasing the Infiltration SuDS Map.

Waterborne High Resolution Geophysical Techniques And Applications
The Near Surface Geophysics Group (NSGG) of the Geological Society are hosting a workshop to showcase the use of geophysical techniques in the shallow water environment.
Held over two days at Rutland Water Sailing Club (near Oakham), a series of talks by academic and industry experts are supported by overwater demonstrations of the latest technology. This will allow delegates to witness the whole cycle of work from theory to practice.
Seminar sessions over the two days will cover:
BGS Marine Operations are planning to attend the workshop and will demonstrate the new BGS road-towable survey catamaran, the White Ribbon, and present recent BGS work in the shallow water environment.
Further information will be posted on the NSGG website
