The British Geological Survey (BGS) has welcomed chief officials from Rushcliffe Borough Council to its headquarters in Keyworth, in a visit to demonstrate the important measures BGS is taking in response to the coronavirus. BGS Executive Director, Dr Karen Hanghøj, met with Kath Marriott, Chief Executive of Rushcliffe Borough Council and Dave Banks, Executive Manager Neighbourhoods, on Monday [6 July]. They were joined by Andrew Bloodworth, BGS Policy Science Director.


Rock matrix diffusion
New research investigating crystalline rocks is helping us to understand the extent to which groundwater may access the rock matrix as it travels through fractures in the rock. Contaminants can be carried by groundwater flowing in fractures through the rock, but processes such as diffusion into the adjacent rock may either temporarily delay the movement of contaminants, or prevent them from moving any further by effectively 'holding on to them'.


Digital geographical map
Our vision is to create a digital-first geoscience organisation linking people, data, equipment and technology to make new inferences about the world around us.
