The environmental modelling directorate (EMD) applies multidisciplinary knowledge to explain, explore and predict the Earth's response to natural and human induced environmental change.
The EMD undertakes research into a variety of areas:
Developing tools and techniques for virtual field reconnaissance and visualisation of geoscientific data.
G-BASE; international geochemistry; abandoned mines; contaminated land.
Spatial prediction of environmental variables; spatial sampling; measuring the uncertainty in geological models; new random model for geological variables.
Interdisciplinary and collaborative geoscience research to understand and mitigate the effects of environmental change in the Thames Basin.
This team develops new data products detailing the physical and chemical characteristics of the ground beneath our feet.
The hazard products team aims to develop new and innovative data products that deliver geoscientific information to a range of users in an accessible form.
Solving complex environmental problems through linking components; propagation of uncertainty through the model chain.
The modelling systems team develops cutting edge geological modelling systems in support of BGS science and information services.
Understanding subsurface heterogeneity; statistical analysis of physical properties; parameterisation of 3D geological models.
Multidisciplinary research and modelling of strategically valuable rock formations for secure and sustainable energy and water resources.
CLiDE environmental modelling platform; groundwater modelling; Lattice-Boltzmann simulations; groundwater flood simulation; modelling slope stability; software and tools.
Systems geology views geology as a set of interacting objects and processes that function as a whole. It aims to harmonise many aspects of geological information with the e-scientists' vision of a comprehensive global knowledge system...
A lumped modular conceptual groundwater model for simulating groundwater level time-series at observation boreholes.
A graphical software tool for the display of geological and geospatial information such as interpreted (correlated) geological cross sections, maps and boreholes.
An add-in to ArcGIS that models the depth to groundwater beneath the land surface. In aquifers (permeable water bearing rocks) that are open to the atmosphere (called unconfined aquifers) it calculates...
