BGS people – Peter Hobbs, a pioneering engineer

For two weeks at the beginning of July I got the opportunity to meet a whole bunch of interesting people at the British Geological Survey and speak with them about what they do, why they enjoy it and why it’s interesting. It’s been a great opportunity for me to geek out at all the amazing things the BGS is doing and the brilliant people who work there.

Here is the third post on the amazing Peter Hobbs, a civil engineer who helped revolutionize the way the BGS works today, and invented some nifty new equipment along the way!! Check out the post here.

BGS people – Leanne Hughes, a modern mapper!

For the last two weeks I have been meeting people at the British Geological Survey and speaking with them about what they do, why they enjoy it and why it’s interesting.

The first post is about Leanne Hughes, one of the Survey Geologists, who uses shiny new technology to map uncharted places for the Survey, and help us plan for flooding. She also makes a mean volcano model! Check out the post here.
