This year the “Doors Open Day” at the British Geological Survey (BGS) has had CICCS representation. Some of the CICCS staff members travelled to Murchison House, the BSG office in Edinburgh, on Saturday 28 September 2013. The day was packed with earth science demonstrations, talks, experiments and lots of hands-on activities. The visitors also learned what is Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) and how it works using a real CCS interactive created by Peter Reid. It was also the perfect occasion to visit the Scottish Centre in Carbon Capture and Storage (SCCS), located in the 3rd floor of the building, and chat with some SCCS members, which kindly invited CICCS to the event. SCCS is a joint partnership of Heriot-Watt University, British Geological Survey and University of Edinburgh.

 

Thanks for letting us take part of this great day!
