2015: Year of Mud

Year of Mud 2015

Themed years are at the heart of the Society’s Science Strategy, and 2015 was the Year of Mud, with a programme of events celebrating a resurgence of interest in that most common of materials.

Mud represents both an end and a beginning – the end of the cycle of erosion and transport, and the beginning of the generation (through burial and transformation) of new materials of great value to society.

Advances in the science of mudrocks benefit fields ranging from shale gas exploration to slope stability, the search for suitable radioactive waste disposal sites, advances in nanogeoscience and biogeology, understanding of soil quality and flood risk, and ground-breaking engineering projects such as Crossrail.
