The British Geological Survey (BGS) has today published an online database of freely viewable and downloadable Marine Geoscience Data, available through the Offshore GeoIndex, covering the whole UK Continental Shelf. It holds approximately 80,000 sampling locations that have a range of valuable geochemical, geological, geotechnical and sediment data including PDF files of legacy scanned data sheets and borehole logs. Offshore data like these are important for research into areas such as carbon storage, energy resources, planning, habitat mapping and conservation.
This week in Nature Climate Change an international team of scientists have published results of the first ever sub-sea carbon dioxide impact, detection and monitoring experiment relevant to Carbon dioxide Capture and Storage (CCS) in sub-seabed storage reservoirs.
The British Geological Survey (BGS) in Edinburgh invite you to their Doors Open Day where scientists and support staff will be demonstrating their experiments, exhibits and equipment on Saturday 27th September 2014.
