British Geological Survey and Geological Survey of Northern Ireland
Geoscience and Brownfields Workshop
Darren Beriro and Alex Donald
This workshop will provide attendees with an enhanced understanding of BGS geoscience used to develop conceptual sites models for risk-based management of brownfield land. Examples will range from accessing BGS digital geology maps to free geological software for drawing accurate cross-sections and borehole logs to bioaccessibility science. Group discussions will focus on what BGS might do differently to enhance the benefits of its science within the brownfield redevelopment process and how we could adapt and respond better to end-user need. We will also discuss new ideas that may perhaps form the basis of collaborative projects and ventures that satisfy defined industry requirements. BGS will use the results of the workshop to plan future geoscience activities.
