Abstract/Summary

A BGS cross-directorate team have developed a new 'GeoClimate' data product for future clay shrink-swell subsidence susceptibility. Considering past weather trends, geological parameters, soil moisture conditions and historical subsidence occurrence, the key causal relationships and trigger thresholds have been identified. The drought periods identified and aligned with UKCP09 climate scenario projections have been verified by correlations with subsidence insurance claims damage data.
