Geophysics Means Business: How UK research benefits industry, education and science

This 16-page booklet brings together many strands of geophysics research in the UK represented by the Royal Astronomical Society and recognized by government in the most recent Research Excellence Framework. Although it is just a snapshot of geophysics research going on in the UK, in breadth and depth it illustrates the value of this group of subjects to our national economy.

From energy security to healthcare, mitigating the effects of natural hazards to understanding the climate, geophysics forms one of the foundations of a safer and more prosperous society.
