'Role of geological science in the decarbonisation of power production, heat, transport and industry'.
In the UK and elsewhere, decarbonisation of power production, industry, transport and heating to meet climate change targets is a major challenge, and one that intrinsically involves the subsurface and geoscience.

This major conference will examine the role that geoscience will play including in energy storage, batteries, carbon abatement and heat production.

The conference will host national experts from industry, academia, and government to look at the geological and reservoir engineering aspects of the problem. The main objective will be to identify the high level barriers to progress and the main science questions – and begin a roadmap to solve the problems.

4D Subsurface Modelling: Predicting the Future

The Geological Society, Burlington House 20–21 February 2019

As geoscientists, we strive for an integrated view of the Earth beneath our feet. Yet, barriers are created by technical disciplines, prevailing methods and data availability. This unique workshop examines what can be gained from building shared models through time and how challenges that lie in their way can be overcome.

Call for abstracts deadline: 30th September 2018
