The British Geological Survey are gathering information from the marine & freshwater geoscience community on their future needs for drilling and coring services, including drilling into and / or sampling the seabed, or lakebed, and shallow subsurface.
This survey is intended to cover any drilling and coring requirements you may have for scientific & research purposes. It is not intended to cover: shallow benthic sediment coring (to <1m below seabed or lakebed); commercial drilling & coring; or land-based drilling.
We will use this information to help us plan the future direction of BGS Marine Operations and the equipment and services we offer.
Thank you in advance for taking the time to complete this survey! 
We would like to be able to contact you to follow-up on your responses to this questionnaire. This is optional but if you choose to provide us with any personal data it will be processed in line with the current UK Data Protection legislation.
