NERC has commissioned five highly ambitious research programmes, worth £34m, that will see its research centres, including the BGS, working closely together to tackle major scientific and societal challenges.
New research developed by an international team of scientists including the British Geological Survey has just been published in Nature Communications. The new study dates past methane emissions from the Barents Sea, to the north of Norway, as well and investigates its potential impact on greenhouse gas concentrations and the climate record.
Many cities are developing 'future city' programmes where knowledge dissemination, cooperation, policy reform and urban design run in parallel with big data and smart technologies. We are working with those at the forefront of future cities thinking to ensure that urban geoscience research and data is embedded in this process and the value of the ground beneath cities is realised.
