Impact stemming from BGS research has already enhanced quality of life, created jobs, protected the environment and benefited the economy, and we continue to tackle existing and emerging issues to benefit society.
The BGS facilitate collaborations with Universities across the UK through joint ventures and appointments.
The BGS has prepared a number of 'geohazard notes' to provide relevant summary information for some of the geohazards that could affect the UK.
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.
Bringing together expertise across the UK's public sector agencies to provide advice in preparation, response and review of natural hazards.
