The BGS has initiated a science-based environmental monitoring programme in The Fylde,Lancashire where planning applications were submitted by Cuadrilla for the development of shale gas. This monitoringis independent of the industry and regulators and represents the first independent, integrated monitoring programmeto characterise the environmental baseline in an area subject to interest from the shale gas industry.
The BGS is a world-leading geological survey that focuses on public-good science and research to understand earth and environmental processes. See examples of those areas of our work that are nationally important, unique and demonstrate our value to the UK.
BUFI's annual Science Festival for 2015 was held on Wednesday 24 June. We had 21 poster presenters in the Exhibition Area of the Conference Suite at our BGS headquarters, Keyworth. View a gallery of the day.
