The BGS has submitted its planning application for a UK Geoenergy Observatory in Cheshire. The Cheshire Geoenergy Research Field Site will deliver important new data on the underground environment and will become a world-class observatory for geoscience, geological modelling and environmental monitoring.

The BGS Annual Science Review for 2017–2018. As a world-leading, global geological survey, we have an extensive programme of geoscience research, survey and monitoring, data management and dissemination. This helps us to focus on public-good science and to understand and predict the geological processes that matter to people's lives.
This major conference will look at the geological solutions to decarbonisation. The main objective will be to identify the high level barriers to progress and the main science questions, as well as to begin a roadmap to put geological decarbonisation firmly on the policy agenda.
