We provide long-term groundwater-related capability in the hydrosciences for the benefit of the UK, and internationally.
Our research addresses issues related to the sustainability of water resources and quality, the impacts of environmental change on the water cycle, natural hazards in the context of groundwater, and groundwater and human health.
We undertake groundwater-related monitoring and surveys and have extensive data and information, much of which is accessible through the BGS website.
With our partners, we undertake integrated catchment studies through the development of field sites and novel monitoring technologies, the development of groundwater models, and the provision of supporting services and analytical facilities.
