Groundwater is an important source of drinking water and it is estimated that more than 200 million people worldwide are drinking groundwater with fluoride concentrations greater than the WHO guideline value of 1.5  mg/L. The majority of these cases occur in the developing world.
Groundwaters are much more vulnerable to fluoride enrichment than surface waters because of the greater impacts of water-rock reactions in aquifers. We have worked on fluoride occurrence in a number of aquifers in the UK and overseas, and with a number of research partners.

In December 2012 the geological map of Great Britain was extended into the third dimension with the release of GB3D shown as a network of cross-sections through the earth s crust.
This new way of visualising 3D national-scale geology will benefit people seeking to understand its relationship to landscape and resources such as water, oil, minerals, coal and gas. It may also prove to be a useful tool to help explain complex geological relationships to the public and in education.More about GB3D — 3D geological model for Great Britain
The BGS recently held a forum to provide our stakeholders with a summary of recent science results, its impact, and our future direction.
Some of our leading scientists delivered talks about of their recent work; you can download some of the presentations at the link below.More about the BGS Stakeholder Forum 2012
