Irish Meteorological Society Lecture: The Tellus Project 
13 March 2017

The next talk in the Irish Meteorological Society’s programme of talks for the spring of 2017 takes place on Thursday, 16 March, at 6pm in the Conference Room of the Custom House, Dublin 1.

Dr. James Hodgson of the Geological Survey, Ireland, will give a presentation on the Tellus Project.

Tellus is a a very interesting and exciting programme that uses ground and airborne measurements to map geoscience data. It uses a low-flying aircraft to measure the Earth’s magnetic field, natural radiation and ground conductivity through electromagnetic signals. Among the uses of the data is the mapping of areas of radon risk, the subject of recent news coverage. Just as Met Eireann collects climate information for current and future use, the Tellus programme also helps to build up a vital national scientific dataset.

Dr. Hodgson is the geophysics programme manager for the Tellus Project run by the Geological Survey, Ireland.
