On 13 May 2104, the Geological Survey of Ireland and Geoscience Ireland were represented at a presentation on Tellus Projects to the All Party Parliamentary Group on Earth and Environmental Sciences at the House of Commons in London. Tellus (named after the Roman goddess of the Earth) provides integrated earth science data sets derived from airborne geophysical surveys and from geochemical sampling. The information is used to inform policy on investments in mineral, energy, agriculture and infrastructure and provides valuable environmental baseline information. The presentations by Dr Mike Young of the Geological Survey of Northern Ireland (GSNI), supported by Dr Marie Cowan (Director Designate of GSNI) and Dr Andy Howard of the British Geological Survey (BGS), related to the Tellus Projects in Northern Ireland, the Republic of Ireland and South West England. Completed in late 2013, the Tellus Border Project was a joint venture between GSI and GSNI and covered 6 Border Counties in the Republic; this coverage was successfully integrated with the earlier project in Northern Ireland (see www.tellusborder.eu for further details). Ray Scanlon (GSI) and Dr Kate Knights (seconded to GSI from BGS) worked on the Tellus Border Project and answered questions in relation to economic benefits, environmental health and public engagement. Sean Finlay of GI suggested that the experience gained from Tellus could readily be offered to international markets. The All Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) is chaired by Martin Caton, MP for Gower in Wales.
