From space weather and geothermal energy to hazard risk assessment and monitoring, scientists from all disciplines of the British Geological Survey (BGS) will be presenting their work and sharing ideas at one of the biggest conferences in geoscience research this week.
The EGU General Assembly 2022 brings together geoscientists from all over the world for one meeting from 23 to 27 May. The event takes place in Vienna, Austria, and will once again provide an on-site experience for those attending in-person and, as much as possible, will include virtual attendees simultaneously.
Covering all disciplines of the earth, planetary and space sciences, the EGU General Assembly provides an important forum for BGS scientists to communicate their research and discuss ideas with other experts in all fields of geoscience, through presentations and face-to-face meetings. In previous years, more than 16 000 presentations have been delivered at the event.
Helen Glaves, BGS Senior Data Scientist, became president of EGU in 2021, having been involved with the union for many years, and will facilitate sessions addressing the inclusivity and diversity of the geoscience community at this year’s assembly.
A major upgrade of BGS’s research equipment following investment from NERC will help scientists understand historic changes in climate.
BGS is the latest UK Government organisation to join the newly unveiled UK Centre for Seabed Mapping (UK CSM), helping to boost marine data and mapping standards.
Three new geomagnetic observatories have been installed across the UK to fill in the country’s ‘blind spots’ and tackle the risk posed by space weather.
The specimen is the first of its kind to be found and is related to the group that includes modern corals, jellyfish and anemones.
Take notice of warning signs and avoid going directly under or on top of cliffs, no matter how tempting it might be.
A new report underlines importance of community engagement in achieving the UK national climate change targets.
