Sheets 21, 22, 23 ,24, 25, 26 and 27 of the Ordnance map of Great Britain These colours are copied from those deposited in this office by H J de la Beche after they had received the sanction of the Council of the Geological Society of London on the 16 May The geological surveying of the UK landmass has been fundamental to the activity of the Geological Survey since its foundation in Geological Standard Colours, 1 May first page These guides were issued at irregular intervals as more geological units were identified during the course of revision mapping.

Geological Survey of Ireland, 1: In the British Geological Survey was asked by the Bolivian government to undertake a major regional survey of the geology and mineral potential of eastern Bolivia up to the border with Brazil, an area roughly the size of Great Britain. Geological surveying in foreign lands Voyages of Discovery - from Darwin to the Moon and beyond: Collaborating widely, our Edinburgh-based team ensures our science contributes to the needs of the private sector, local and central government, non-governmental organisations, academia and the wider community.
Much of our current research is focused on urban geology and on the Central Belt of Scotland, particularly the Carboniferous rocks. Understanding this area's geology is increasingly important as the legacy of past industrial development, future land use and resource and energy pressures combine to create a highly sensitive subsurface environment. This presents major challenges for sustainable development and potentially conflicting uses, particularly beneath our cities.
We are also active in applied geomorphological research. The upland environments of Scotland provide valuable ecosystem services, many of which are closely linked with geomorphology. Click on the drawing pins for more information.
Energy and minerals
Working closely with the Scottish Mines Restoration Trust to find ways of delivering a natural rock laboratory for training and research in East Ayrshire and South Lanarkshire. Capturing key digital datasets underpinning the UK geoscience knowledge base and the national 3D geological model.
Researching the processes of mountain building and landscape development. Focusing on the Great Glen and the north west Highlands.
How to use the Climate through time poster
Renewable energy sector applied geological and tectonic expertise, particularly in hydroelectricity. Making geoscience information more accessible, relevant and understandable to users involved in the sustainable regeneration and development of Glasgow and the Clyde Gateway. Planning for their future sustainable management requires an understanding of landscape evolution.
We collect digital geological and hydrogeological data from the land around the Moray Firth to produce linked 3D shallow groundwater models.
Geological History of Britain and Ireland
Accessing Subsurface Knowledge ASK is an innovative subsurface data and knowledge exchange network between public and private sectors that is focused around Glasgow. Audits of Scotland's local geological assets. Strategic assessment of the value and state of Scotland's geodiversity. Working with the Scottish Geoparks in raising awareness of Scotland's geological heritage and in promoting geotourism.

Scientists from the universities of Cambridge, Leicester and Southampton, BGS and National Museums of Scotland are collaborating to study some spectacular, newly-discovered early Carboniferous tetrapod fossils, to fill the gap in our understanding of how and why these animals became fully terrestrial. A network has been established to coordinate, integrate and accelerate the world-leading research into modelling the subsurface taking place in European institutions, and to develop a toolbox to enable dissemination of subsurface knowledge.
Assynt has long attracted geologists using the area to learn how mountain ranges are formed.
