NERC is delighted to announce that current UK Geoenergy Observatories Science Advisory Group member Professor David Manning has been appointed to the role of senior science user for the UK Geoenergy Observatories project.

Professor Manning is a former president of the Geological Society and a highly respected geoscientist based at Newcastle University.

The role will include capturing and representing science user requirements, advising on trade-offs between conflicting science and logistical requirements, and facilitating engagement between the British Geological Survey (BGS), who are delivering the project, and the wider science community.
