BGS logo to colour in
The Cartographics team at BGS have been busy thinking how we can brighten up the dull, dark month of January after the Christmas cheer. In keeping with the current craze for mindful colouring, we've created a series of maps and images, using our geological data, that you can colour in. Grab your pencils and start feeler calmer, less stressed and more at peace. Share your creations with us.

We are a node of the NERC Isotope Geosciences Facilities, focussed on (1) uranium-daughter geochronology (U-Pb, Th-Pb and U-Th) applied to a broad range of geoscience topics, and (2) isotope tracers (e.g., Si, Cu, Sr, Pb, U) for a range of contemporary environmental processes (e.g., biosphere mapping, hydrology, depleted uranium). We work with the UK HEI community and international partners to deliver research, method development and training.
