A BGS-led research team is setting out to define the combined environmental and health risks over the whole life cycle of shale gas operations in the UK. The team will investigate the surface and near-surface processes that affect pollutant behaviour in water and air, and earthquake hazard associated with shale gas development in the UK.
Dr Andy Chadwick has been awarded the MBE in recognition of his services to the science of carbon capture and sequestration. The BGS is a world leader in the science of underground carbon dioxide storage and Andy's MBE reflects the high quality and high profile research of Andy and his colleagues.
Profesor Martin Broadley, jointly with Dr Louise Ander of the British Geological Survey (BGS), were presented with a presitgious Innovator of the Year award for international impact, in recognition of their world-leading research into solving hidden hunger.
On 21–23 January 2019, BGS are co-convening this meeting at the Geological Society in London entitled 'Role of geological science in the decarbonisation of power production, heat, transport and industry'.
The meeting will give information about the UK Geoenergy Observatories sites, facilities and science vision, including practicalities concerning delivery of UKGEOS research. It will also explain how scientists and early career researchers can get involved.
Improved disaster response in Commonwealth states and tropical disease control are among the goals of 10 new projects involving British space organisations, Science Minister Sam Gyimah announced on 8 February. A new BGS-led project is: Modelling Exposure Through Earth Observation Routines (METEOR): EO-based Exposure, Nepal and Tanzania Grant: £2.8 million.
