I started this blog about a year ago and have managed more or less one per month. I had a bet (a plate of oysters) with Sarah Nice from the BGS Communications Team, that no one would bother to read it. Well, I lost my bet as I now have several thousand readers, not a hard price to pay and the oysters were a first for Sarah.
BGS continues to do well despite the hard financial times and tight budgets from government. Nonetheless, our science outputs have increased this year, both in the conventional literature and on the web and in smart apps.
I encourage you to lake a look at our report for the last financial year and the presentations at our recent 2012 stakeholder meeting at the Geological Society of London.
I wish you all a happy Christmas and all the best for 2013 and thanks for reading the blogs; I will keep them coming in 2013!
