Written by the staff themselves this blog will give you a glimpse of the challenges and achievements of those who make the BGS a world-leading geoscience centre.
From geologists to cartographers
From groundwater to space weather
From breaking discoveries to the daily grind (and sieving and shaking and breaking)
And everything in between
