BGS operate and maintain a wide range of state-of-the-art laboratories and other facilities. These facilities, managed under the Science Facilities Directorate, underpin virtually all of BGS's diverse range of core and commissioned research programmes.
In addition to information on capability, you will find examples of how our science facilities contribute to BGS's research efforts. Some of our recent research highlights are available below.
Investigations include the London Basin, Magnesian Limestone of north-east England, Precambrian of Aberdeenshire and Permo-Triassic Sandstone of the Moray Basin.
