BGS Open Day 2013

The British Geological Survey will hold its next Open Day at its Environmental Science Centre in Keyworth on Saturday 27 June 2013 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

We are planning a packed day illustrating the wide scope and applications of our research activities.

There will be something for rock lovers of all ages — from newbies to experienced earth scientists.

Geophysics for critical infrastructure

The Engineering Group (EGGS) and Near-Surface Geophysics Group (NSGG) of the Geological Society and the British Geological Survey (BGS) are jointly organising this one-day meeting aimed at industry professionals involved in geophysical investigations for critical infrastructure projects, including past or potential future end-users of geophysics (non-specialists).

Meeting aims:

  • Bring together industry and research professionals from the geophysical, geotechnical and civil engineering sectors to foster a better understanding of mutual needs and expectations
  • Highlight geophysical case studies and best practice in critical infrastructure investigations
  • Disseminate implications for near-surface geophysics of the forthcoming revision to BS5930 (2015)

If you would like to present your work to a broad audience of industry professionals and researchers, please email your title and abstract (max 300 words) to by 29th May 2015.
