At present, all Survey staff except a small group of petroleum specialists are accommodated in Murchison House. They have responsibility for offshore petroleum geology and marine surveys for the whole of the UK, for the land survey of northern Britain from the Lake District northwards, and for the UK-wide earthquake and geomagnetic monitoring. Small sections, with their parent groups in England, are concerned with the groundwater resources of Scotland and with geophysical surveys. Most of the core activities of Edinburgh-based groups are co-funded by industry, with oil companies being prominent but not the only supporters. International and contract work is conducted to exploit the expertise and databases within Murchison House, to continuously demonstrate the relevance of our science and to ensure the survival and prosperity of the British Geological Survey in Scotland.
