'Mapping the Underworld' research informs new industry standard

'Mapping the Underworld' research informs new industry standard
Description
The vast network of utility services buried underground is fundamental to the way we live today, however around 4 million holes are dug into UK roads each year resulting in traffic disruption, high costs and wasted man hours. Not only this, inaccurate, incomplete and/or out-of-date information on the existence and location of utility assets poses problems for new construction or rehabilitation works and many projects don't go according to plan. Dr Nicole Metje, School of Civil Engineering, has spent nearly two years as the academic advisor for a dedicated committee working on the development of a Publicly Available Specification (PAS) project, which sought to address some of these challenges.

EPS Distinguished Lecture: Professor Paul Cannon

Date
06/11/2014
Description
Minor explosive eruptions of energy from the Sun that cause small solar storms on Earth are relatively common events. In contrast, extremely large events (superstorms) only occur very occasionally – perhaps once every century or two. Since the start of the space age there has been no true solar-superstorm but there have been a number of large storms, some of which have caused major technological and economic damage.
