BUFI publications 2014

The British Geological Survey University Funding Initiative (BUFI) supports numerous PhD students through funding and/or supervision. Below is a list of ISI publications arising from these collaborations. BUFI students are highlighted in bold and italics and British Geological Survey supervisors are highlighted in bold.

You can view the abstracts of these publications online and in some cases the full article will be available to view on line by following the DOI link. The publications are searchable by year or by using the search box below.

Between 2010 and 2016, our students authored over 180 publications with an average of 25 papers being published every year. At the end of 2016 our student cohort had an H-index of 29, equivalent to a high-ranking professor!
