The papers deposited in Nottingham University Library by Sir Peter Kent in 1985 were received from the Library in August 1990. OUTLINE OF THE CAREER OF SIR PETER KENT Percy Edward (from an early age he choseto be called Peter) Kent was born in West Bridgford, Nottingham, in 1913. He was educated at West Bridgford Grammar School and University College, Nottingham, where he read Geology under Professor H.H. Swinnerton. He graduated B.Sc.withfirst class honours in 1934. He was then awarded a scholarship by the Department of Scientific and Industrial Research for research on the stratigraphy of the Lincolnshire Limestone and registered with London University for his Ph.D. Shortly after graduation, however, Kent was recommended to L.S.B. Leakey as geologist for his fourth East African Archaeological Expedition, the original choice K.P. Oakley having withdrawn. The expedition searched for remains of Homosapiens at Pleistocene sites at Kanam and Kanjera in Kenya following on from Leakey's expedition of 1931-32, and thenat Olduvai Gorge in Tanzania, but with inconclusive results. Kent returned to the UK in 1935 and spent the following year writing up his results and resuming his study of Lincolnshire Limestone. On the strength of his work in Lincolnshire Kent joined the Anglo- Iranian Oil Company (later to becomeBritish Petroleum) as an Assistant Geologist. He undertook survey work on the south coast of England 1936-37. Kent then returned to Lincolnshire to report on the geology of the area and was also assigned to check the geology of the ‘Market Weighton Anticline’ in south east Yorkshire. Kent's survey showed that in fact no anticline existed. In 1938 Kent was despatched to Scotland where exploration for oil had begun in the carboniferous rocks of central Scotland, and in 1939 to Formby in Lancashire where oil seepages had been discovered. Onthe outbreak of war Kent was in a 'reserved' occupation and so continued to work for Anglo- Iranian in Nottinghamshire. In 1941, however, he was released by Anglo-lranian as they cut back on their geological surveying and he joined the Royal Air Force Volunteer Reserve. He was assigned to the Photo-Intelligence Branch of D section (Industry) of the RAF Central Interpretation Unit based at P. E. Kent NCUACS43/5/93 5 Medmenham, Buckinghamshire. Kent worked on the assessment of German oil supplies - initially locating oil storage tanks,later identifying synthetic oil plants in which the Germans were converting coal to oil. Kent was seconded to the Mediterranean Allied Air Force in Italy in 1944 and in 1945 he was posted to the Pentagon, Washington DC,to work with G2 Branch of US ArmyIntelligence on photo-interpretation of Japaneseoil installations. For his work onidentifying oil plants in Axis held Europe he was awarded the US Legion of Merit in 1946. At the end of the war with Japan Kent was the only non-American to accompany the US Strategic Bombing Survey, assessing the effectiveness of air raids on targets in Japan. After the war Kent rejoined Anglo-lranian and resumed work onoil finds in the Upper Carboniferous rock of the east Midlands, based at Eakring, Nottinghamshire. In 1948 he was posted to Iran for stratigraphic survey work in the Zagros mountainsin south east Iran. He returned to the UKin 1951, following the political disturbances in Iran which had resulted in the nationalisation of BP's Iranian interests and so curtailed further survey work. He was almost immediately sent to East Africa, a report having been received that a Kenyan government geologist had found signsof oil. It transpired that no oil was to be found, although the area was geologically promising, and Kent went on to Tanganyika where the prospects of finding oil seemed better. The results of this pioneering geological work were published in 1971 by the Geological Survey as Geology and Geophysics of Coastal Tanzania with Kent as a co-author. In 1955 Kent was posted to Papua New Guinea, first as Deputy Chief Geologist later Chief Geologist, with the Australasian Petroleum Company, a part-owned BP subsidiary. Kent was involved in surveys in the rain forest and the highlands of Papua. This metwithlittle success despite the promising geology of the area. Kent was posted to Canada in 1957 as Adviser to the President of BP Canada. There waslittle progress in eastern Canada and work moved westwards to the Northwest Territories and Canadian Arctic islands in 1958. In 1959 BP also began investigating oil prospectsin the north of Alaska. BP Exploration (Alaska) was formed with Kentasits first President. The work of Kent and his team wasto lead to a numberof discoveries of oil and gas including the two hugefields at Prudhoe Bay and Kuparek. In 1970 Kent and two BP colleagues, H.R. Warman and A.N. Thomas, were awarded the MacRobert Award of the Council of Engineering Institutions for the techniques they pioneered for accurate surveying through permafrost which made the discoveries possible. P. E. Kent NCUACS43/5/93 6 From 1961 Kent's duties became more managerial. He was appointed Deputy Chief Geologist of BP in 1961, Regional Manager of BP North and South America in 1962 and Technical and Regional Manager of BP America and the Western Hemisphere a yearlater. In 1966 Kent was made Chief Geologist and was muchinvolved in operations in the North Sea, particularly the discovery of the Forties field. Kent was appointed Assistant General Manager (Exploration) in 1971. Kent retired from BP in 1973 but continued as a consultant on exploration matters with special referenceto Iran, Canada and the UK. Kent had maintained his close connection with oil exploration in Iran through his service from 1965 on the Exploration Advisory Group, a body formed in 1957 to advise oil companies operating in Iran on exploration matters. In 1973 Kent became Chairman of the Group, his continuing membership of the EAG being part of his post-retirement consultancy with BP. The EAG's activities were halted in 1978 by the Islamic revolution and the overthrow of the Shah. Onhis retirement Kent was appointed Chairman of the Natural Environment Research Council, a post he held until 1977. In 1977 Kentjoined the Board of LASMO (London and Scottish Marine Oil). He resigned from the Board in 1983 having seen LASMO develop from a very small investment houseinto a leading independentBritish oil company. In 1982 he accepted aninvitation to join the Board of Directors of Minworth Ltd, the controlling body of the Minworth Group of companies, and became its Chairman the following year. He also served as Chairman of Strontian Minerals, a subsidiary companywithin the Minworth Group, 1983-86. Kent's numerous contributions to geology were introduced by his Royal Society memorialists as follows: ‘Under Professor Swinnerton we may assume that Peter became so familiar with the chronostratigraphy of the Jurassic and Cretaceousthat he was able to recognize with confidence the zonal level of the rocks in Lincolnshire and Leicestershire that formed the subjects of his earliest researches. This was one of the techniques upon which his career was based; the other wasthe art of field mapping. Neither of these techniques, however, became anobjective in its ownright in his hands; both were employed for the deciphering of the structural history of parts of the Earth's shallow crust, some of them of great economic importance. His work will remain influential in this field of structural interpretation; growing from small beginnings in the East Midlands, thence to the North Sea and beyondthat to the aseismic continental margins of northern Europe and East Africa’. (N.L. Falcon and Sir Kingsley Dunham, Biographical Memoirs of Fellows of the Royal Society, 33, 1987, 343-373, p.360). P. E. Kent NCUACS43/5/93 7 Kent was accorded many honours for his contributions to geology and to petroleum exploration. He was elected a Fellow of the Geological Society of London in 1938 and was awarded the Society's Lyell Fund in 1949 and their Bigsby and Murchison Medals in 1953 and 1969 respectively. He served as President of the Geological Society 1974-76. Kent was elected to the American Association of Petroleum Geologists in 1957 (Honorary Member 1976), the Geological Society of America in 1966 and the Petroleum Exploration Society of Great Britain, of which he was a founder- memberin 1965 and which he served as Chairman 1966. He received the MacRobert Award (see above) in 1970. Kent was President of the Yorkshire Geological Society 1965-66 and was awarded its Sorby Medal in 1973. He received Honorary Degrees from the universities of Leicester (1972), Durham (1974), Bristol (1976), Glasgow (1977), Aberdeen (1978), Cambridge (1979), Hull (1981) and Birmingham (1983). Kent waselected to the Fellowship of the Royal Society in 1966 (serving on Council 1967-69) and was awardedits Royal Medal in 1971. Kent was knighted in 1973. Kent married twice, in 1940 to Margaret Betty Hood, who died in 1974, and in 1976 to Lorna Ogilvie Scott. DESCRIPTION OF THE COLLECTION The material is presented in the order given in the List of Contents. This large collection covers almostall aspects of Kent's professional career. Section A, Biographical, is substantial. There is Kent's autobiographical account ‘Recollections in retirement’, and records of Kent's student work at University College Nottingham, his membership of the East African Archaeological Expedition 1934-35, his Second World War service and his career with the Anglo-lranian Oil Company/BP. The honours received by Kent are well-documented, including his election to the Fellowship of the Royal Society in 1966, the MacRobert Award in 1970 and his knighthood in 1973. The section also includes diaries 1950-71, family and social correspondence,including a sequence of letters home during Kent's period in Iran 1948-51, and miscellaneous personal papers and memorabilia. Section B, Research and surveys, is the largest in the collection. It documents Kent's survey and oil exploration work and his own geological research from the first work with Anglo-lranian Oil in Lincolnshire in 1936, through his postwar work for BP in the UK and overseasin Iran, East Africa, Papua New Guinea and North America, to the North Sea discoveries of the 1960s and 1970s, and P. E. Kent NCUACS43/5/93 8 post-retirement research to 1986. There was a closerelationship between Kent's work for Anglo- lranian/BP and his academic geological research; with the company's goodwill Kent was able to use information from company surveysin his own publications. Kent retained a continuing interest in the geology and oil prospects of areas of the world he had visited and this is reflected in the wide geographical coverage of the papers. The bulk of the material, however, is concerned with the geology of England (particularly the Midland counties) and Iran (including the work of the Exploration Advisory Group). The material, most of which was found in Kent's own folders or envelopes, includes correspondence, manuscript notes (some on pages from ‘filofax' style notebooks), typescript drafts and notes, stratigraphical columns, oil well logs, maps, sections and photographs. There are also a numberof notebooks. Section C, Deep Sea Drilling Project, documents Kent's involvement in the Deep Sea Drilling Project (DSDP) from the negotiations over British participation in 1973 and the establishment of the International Phase of Ocean Drilling (IPOD) in 1975. The lead agency in the UK was the Natural Environment Research Council, of which Kent was Chairman. Kent served on the Executive Committee of JOIDES, the consortium of member-institutions of the project, 1975-81, and on the UK IPOD Co-ordinating Committee. His involvement continued to the completion of the IPOD in November1983 and the campaign for British participation in its successor programme, the Advanced OceanDrilling Project (AODP, later just ODP). Kent played an active part in the research, reviewing the results of Leg 25 of the DSDP, which surveyed the western Indian Ocean and contributing to the series Initial Reports of the Deep Sea Drilling Project. Section D, Publications and lectures, brings together material for many of Kent's published papers, 1936-87, and lectures from 1952. The largest single body of material documents his geological memoir for the Institute of Geological Sciences, Eastern England from the Tees to the Wash (HMSO, 1980). The lectures were chiefly delivered to university and college geological societies or The latter include Presidential addresses to the local geological and natural history societies. Yorkshire Geological Society and to the Lincolnshire Naturalists’ Union. There are also sequencesof editorial correspondence and Letters to The Times. At D.134 is material relating to a BBC radio broadcast on explorers in which Kent took part. There is an (incomplete) set of Kent's published papersat D.135. Section E, Natural Environment Research Council, includes papers relating to Kent's service on the the Geology and Geophysics Committee(later Institute of Geological Sciences Advisory Committee) P. E. Kent NCUACS43/5/93 9 of the NERC 1968-73, his Chairmanship of the NERC 1973-77 and subsequent Council service 1977-80. These activities are poorly documented since, with the exception of his first year as Chairman of the NERC, Kent did not retain many committee papers orofficial correspondence. The bulk of the papers document Kent's service on Preparatory Group 'A' of the Council, as a memberof which Kent served on the Deep Geology Committee and Visiting Groups to the Institutes of Geological Sciences and of Oceanographical Sciences. Section F, Societies and organisations, is the second largest in the collection. It documents Kent's association with 41 British, overseas and international bodies. These include the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, for which Kent acted as adviserin territorial disputes in the North Atlantic Ocean (Rockall) and the English Channel, the Geological Society, of which Kent was President 1974-76, the International Trust for Zoological Nomenclature, the Royal Society and the Watt Committee on Energy. For material relating to the British Geological Survey see the entry for the Institute of Geological Sciences and, specifically relating to the campaign to safeguard the future of the Survey 1984-86,the Institution of Geologists. Also of interest is the material on local geological and natural history societies of which Kent was a member,including the East Midlands and Yorkshire Geological Societies and the Leicestershire, Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire Trusts for Nature Conservation. Section G, Commercial consultancies and companies, comprises material relating to Kent's work for commercial organisations, principally BP, LASMO and the Minworth Group. The material relating to BP includes documentation of his later managerial career within BP, but much of it dates from his post-retirement consultancy from 1973. Kent's involvement with LASMO 1977-84 is the best documented componentof this section. As a memberof the Board and a consultant Kent was very closely involved with the operation of this companyat a crucial stage in LASMO's developmentinto a leading independentBritish oil company. The LASMO material also records the history of Charlton ThermosystemsLtd, a small company attempting to market a pioneering heating system, in which LASMO had a closeinterest. Kent's shorter period of service with the Minworth Group, as Board member and Chairman of Minworth Ltd and Chairman of Strontian Minerals, is also well- documented. Section H, Visits and conferences, presents a chronological sequence, 1951-85, of some of Kent's engagements both in the UK and abroad. Thevisit for which most documentation survives is the 1968 International Geological Congress held in Prague, Kent led the UK delegation. The proceedings P. E. Kent NCUACS43/5/93 10 were cut short by the Warsaw Pact invasion of Czechoslovakia and the Soviet occupation of Prague and the material includes accounts of the events by Kent and his wife, and memorabilia. The section does not presentall of Kent's extensive travel and attendance at meetings and conferences. His overseas research and survey work for BP is documented in section B and his visit to East Africa with the East African Archaeological Expedition is documented at A.53-A.102. Section J, Scientific correspondence, is the smallest in the collection. There are no extended sequences of correspondence. Muchof Kent's correspondence is to be found in other sections, retained with other material with which it was found. There is, for example, a great deal of scientific correspondencein section B. There is also an index of correspondents. LOCATION OF OTHER MATERIAL An album containing photographs taken during the East African Archaeological Expedition was donated by Kent to the British Museum (Natural History) in January 1977. ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS Weare very grateful to Lady Kent for making the bulk of the papers available and to Lady Kent and Dr Dorothy Johnston, Keeper of Manuscripts, Nottingham University, for advice and encouragement.

Kent NCUACS43/5/93 18 Biographical EAST AFRICAN ARCHAEOLOGICALEXPEDITION Leakey's After graduation in 1934 Kent was invited L.S.B. He was archaeological expedition to East Africa on its fourth season. recommended in the place of K.P. Oakley who had withdrawn from the expedition. join to The expedition wasto follow up Leakey's expedition of 1931-32 to Kenya, in the course of which Leakey had discovered fragments of a hominid skull at Kanjera and a hominid jaw bone at Kanam. The bones were thought to be from Homo sapiens. Leakey said the jaw had been found in Lower Pleistocene beds, which suggested an earlier date for the appearance of Homo sapiens than had hitherto been supposed, and the skull pieces in Middle Pleistocene. However, Professor P.G.H. Boswell, a leading authority on the Pleistocene, cast doubt on Leakey's claims and Leakey,to prove his case, persuaded the Royal Society to fund Boswell to visit the sites with him on his next expedition to East Africa. The expedition left England on 24 October and arrived in Kenya on 10 November. There was considerable difficulty finding the site of Leakey's main discovery. This, it transpired, was because the photograph purported to be of the site was in fact, as Kent and S. White, the expedition surveyor, discovered, of gullies some distance away. Boswell returned to the UK in January and wrote a Letter to Nature in which he revealed the discrepancy. The matter was complicated by the fact that the photograph was to appear in Leakey's book on his discoveries about to be published by Oxford University Press. Leakey argued that there was nointention to mislead and withdrew the photograph from the book. Further difficulty arose when it becameclear that the hominid jawbone had not actually been found in situ by Leakey but collected by a native assistant and that it was quite possibleit had slipped downinto the Pleistocene bed through cracksin the ground. Kentinitially served as assistant to Boswell, but following Boswell's return to the UK in January served as the Expedition Geologist. Thefirst stage of the expedition searched for the sites of Leakey's finds and other evidence of early Homo sapiens at Kanam and Kanjera and other locations in the Kavirondo area of Kenya. In May 1935 the team moved on to Olduvai Gorge (Oldoway) in Tanganyika. Kent left Kenya on 8 August 1935. See also B.365, D.2.

Kent NCUACS 43/5/93 45 SECTION B RESEARCH AND SURVEYS B.1-B.505 The papersin this section document Kent's survey workfor the Anglo-lranian Oil Company(later BP) and subsidiary companies, and Kent's own geological research. The two are closely related. With the company's goodwill Kent was able to use information from company surveys to further his own geological research, and his survey work itself represents a considerable geological achievement. A list of the over 90 reports Kent prepared for BP is at A.17 The material dates from Kent's first work with Anglo-lranian Oil in Lincolnshire in 1935, through his postwar work for BP in the UK and overseasin Iran, East Africa, Papua New Guinea and North America, to the North Sea discoveries of the 1960s and 1970s, and post-retirement research to 1986. The geographical coverageis thus very wide, although the bulk of the papers are concerned with the geology of England (particularly the Midland counties) and Iran. Much of the material was found in Kent's own folders or envelopes, usually with the title inscribed thereon. Thesetitles have been reproducedin the catalogue entries. The folders or envelopes may contain material spanning many decades, reflecting Kent's continuing interest over an extended period in certain areas of the UK andof the world - such as Lincolnshire, East Africa and Iran. This material includes ms notes (some on pages from ‘filofax' style notebooks), typescript drafts and notes, stratigraphical columns, oil well logs, maps, sections and photographs. There are also a number of notebooks. The material has been arranged by geographical area. At the end of the sectionis a little material reflecting Kent's concern with wider energy issues, such as the gasification of coal. The material is presented asfollows: B.1-B.225 UNITED KINGDOM B.1-B.7 England general B.8-B.52 Midlands general B.53-B.122 Lincolnshire B.123-B.131 Nottinghamshire P. E.

Here he was involved in studying the geology of the outer mountains of the Zagros range. In 1951 BP were expelled from Iran when its interests were nationalised by the Iranian government. Kent was involved in three major surveys; of Kazerun 1948-49, and then of Bebehan-Kazerun 1949-50 and Fars-Laristan 1950-51 both of which were led by Kent. In 1951 BP was expelled from Iran when foreign owned oil companies were nationalised. For Kent's letters hometo his family in this period see A.213-A.218. With the restoration of the monarchy in Iran BP were able to resumetheir activities. In 1957 a consortium of western oil companies operating in Iran, including BP, established the Exploration Advisory Group, to advise on exploration matters. Later it reported to OSCO- the Oil Service Company- a joint concern of western oil companies serving as a direct contractor to the National Iranian Oil Company. Kent became a memberof the EAG in 1965, replacing N.L. Falcon as the BP representative. In 1973 Kent became Chairman of the Group in succession to H.D. Hedburg, his continuing membership of the EAG being part of his post-retirment consultancy with BP. EAGactivity comprised visits to Teheran to receive briefings from staff on the ground followed byfield trips, chiefly to the oilfields and the Zagros mountains area. The party would then return to Teheranto draft its report. The EAG madeits last visit in 1978; its activities were halted by the Islamic revolution and the overthrow of the Shah. Kent's interest in salt plugs dated to his survey work in the Zagros Salt plugs are more numerous and better seen in mountains in 1948-51. this region of Iran than in any other area of the world. In February 1968 Kent was a memberof a party which conducted a minor survey of salt plugs in the Fars province. P.E.

Kent NCUACS43/5/93 107 SECTION C DEEP SEA DRILLING PROJECT C.1-C.121 The Deep SeaDrilling Project (DSDP) began in August 1968 as an 18 month projectdrilling off the eastern coast of Florida. The successof this first phase led to 30 and 36 month extensions and widening of the geographical scope. During the period 1968-75 the Project concentrated on making an extensive reconnaissance of the sedimentology of the oceanfloor. The Project had been financed by the US National Science Foundation and operated by Scripps Institution of Oceanography, for a consortium of universities called the Joint Oceanographic Institutions for Deep Earth Sampling (JOIDES). In 1973 with the end of the reconnaissancedrilling in sight it was proposed the DSDP beinternationalised and in the autumn of 1975 the UK, France, West Germany, the USSR and Japanjoined the Project in the International Phase of Ocean Drilling (IPOD). The lead agency in the UK was the Natural Environment Research Council, of which Kent was Chairman. The IPOD wastodrill fewer boreholes but to greater depths than previously feasible. The IPOD ended in November 1983 after 15 years whenits drilling ship the D/V Glomar Challenger required an overhaul. A successor 10 year programme wasput forward by JOIDES, the Advanced Ocean Drilling Project (AODP, later just ODP). The UK wasinvolvedin the planning stage of AODP and, after somedifficulty raising the requisite funds, joined the Project in December1985. The DSDP wasconsidered to be a highly successful enterprise. Amongits practical results was the discovery of oil in the Gulf of Mexico at a depth of 12,000 feet, and its findings have been used to support the theory of continental drift. In a letter of 31 January 1984 (C.47) J.C. Bowman wrote to Kent describing the project as ‘remarkably successful in exploring the geology of the ocean floor, both in terms of the basic knowledge gained andits application in other fields such as mineral and hydrocarbon exploration’. In addition to his service on the Executive Committee of JOIDES, 1975-81, and on the UK IPOD Co- ordinating Committee, Kent played an active part in the research. He reviewed the results of Leg 25 of the DSDP, which surveyed the western Indian Ocean, particularly the area around Madagascar and contributed a chapterto /nitial Reports of the Deep Sea Drilling Project (Bibliog. 91, 1974).

P. E. Kent NCUACS43/5/93 139 SECTION E NATURAL ENVIRONMENT RESEARCH COUNCIL E.1-E.196 Kent served on the Geology and Geophysics Committee (later Institute of Geological Sciences Advisory Committee) of the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) 1968-73. In 1973, following his retirement from BP, he was appointed Chairman of the NERC for four years. Kent continued to serve on the Council of the NERC until September 1980. He sat on a number of NERC committees during his Chairmanship and subsequent period on Council. The material presented in this section is by no means comprehensive. Both Kent's Chairmanship of the NERC 1973-77 and his service on Council 1977-80 are poorly documented. Ofparticularinterest therefore is Kent's ‘daybook' for 1973-74 (E.23-E.35), a folder in which he kept copies of outgoing correspondence and papers. This chiefly, though by no means exclusively, relates to NERC business. The best documented area of NERC activity is Kent's service as adviser on geological and geophysical activities under the auspices of Preparatory Group ‘A’. The material is presented asfollows: E.1-E.45 GEOLOGY AND GEOPHYSICS COMMITTEE E.16-E.64 CHAIRMANSHIP AND COUNCIL E.65-E.188 PREPARATORY GROUP A E.65-E.90 General, and Visiting Group to IGS/IOS E.91-E.178 Deep Geology Committee E.179-E.188 Working Group on Abiogenic gases within the UK crust E.189-E.196 MISCELLANEOUS P. E. Kent NCUACS43/5/93 140 Natural Environment Research Council GEOLOGY AND GEOPHYSICS COMMITTEE (later INSTITUTE OF GEOLOGICAL SCIENCES ADVISORY COMMITTEE) The Committee's terms of reference were 'To guide, co-ordinate and keep under review the whole field of research on geology and geophysics, including the geology and geophysics of the sea-floor, to assume responsibility... for the Institute of Geological Sciences, [and] to advise on the award of grants to universities and other bodies, and of fellowships and training grants to post-graduate students,in the earth sciences’. Kent served on the Committee as BP representative for three years from 1 August 1968 in succession to N.L. Falcon. In 1971 the Committee was restructured into a number of smaller Committees, including the Institute of Geological Sciences Advisory Committee. Kent served on this body for a further three year term.

This folder comprises Kent's own copies of correspondence and papers sent out from his office as Chairman of the NERC 12 September 1973 - 14 October 1974. The material does not cover NERCbusiness exclusively but P. E. Kent NCUACS43/5/93 142 Natural Environment Research Council includes scientific and social correspondence. Subjects range from social invitations to NERCpolicy on support of research. A continuing theme in these papers is the NERC response to the Government White Paper Cmnd 5046, which changed the way in which certain areas of research were funded. Certain programmes of applied research wereto be funded by the relevant Government Departments with funds transferred from the NERC. This entailed negotiations with the Departmentof Trade and Industry (DTI), the Department of the Environment and the Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Fisheries over which projects should be supported by them and how much moneyshould betransferred. Most of the material concerns negotiations over the ‘DTI gap’, the discrepancy between the sum to be transferred from the NERC to the Departmentof Trade and Industry (which in 1974 wasthen divided into three Departments of Energy, Trade and Industry) and the costof the existing and available applied research programmes.

Deep Geology Committee In 1978, following the creation by the Institute of Geological Sciences of a Deep Geology Unit, the NERC established a Deep Geology Programmeto coordinate research into Deep Geology carried out by the IGS Unit and a numberof universities. The Deep Geology Committee was established in February 1979 to oversee the Programme. Kent served on the Committee from its inception (as the first Chairman 1979-83). The Committee reviewed progress and considered proposals for the research to be carried out under the Programme, and organised meetings. It reported to Preparatory Group ‘A’.

Working Group on Deep Source Gaseswithin the UK crust This Working Group was established by the Deep Geology Committee at their meeting on 24 February 1982 'to propose a programme of work to investigate occurrences of methane, actual and potential within the UK crust’. Kent was Chairman of the group. The subject under study arose from the hypothesis of Professor Thomas Gold of Cornell University that throughout geological time carbon gases trapped inside the Earth during its formation gradually seep out through the Earth's surface. The most common of these carbon gases was methane and it was suggestedthat if the hypothesis were correct this methane could be a valuable source of energy. Kent's interest in Gold's ideas about the origins of natural gases and oil preceded the formation of the Working Party. In 1980 Gold visited the Energy Technology Support Unit (ETSU) at the Atomic Energy Research Establishment, Harwell, to lecture on ‘Primordial methane - energy source for the future?’ and discuss his ideas, and Kent had been among those attending.

In the case of correlation of the Triassic, described by Kent in a letter to M.G. Audley-Charles of 15 November 1966 (F.88) as ‘one of the mostdifficult in British stratigraphy’it wasfelt necessary to organise up-to-date reappraisals of regional data on the Triassic. The Working Group, chaired by Kent, began work in 1967, holding a symposium on 1 November 1967, the results of which were published in a special issue of the Geological Society's Quarterly Journal. The Working Group then went on consider three phases of the Triassic in the preparation of a correlation chart: the Rhaetic, the Keuper and the Bunter.

British Geological Survey In 1984 the proposed reductions in NERC funding of the British Geological Survey for 1984-85, together with withdrawal of funds by individual Government Departments, led to serious concern for the future of the Survey. This concern washeightened by the proposed reorganisation of the NERC in its 1985 Corporate Plan. There wasparticular opposition to plans to administer the Survey asif it were a university-based NERC directed research institute. It was argued that this was incompatible with the Survey's role as a national body with statutory requirements for the geological mapping of the UK, whose gathering of strategic data available for public use was vital to the full development of British mineral and hydrocarbon resources. It was suggested that the Survey should be given a semi-autonomous status such as that enjoyed by the Ordnance Survey. In response to calls for an independent review of the British Geological Survey a joint NERC/Advisory Board for the Research Councils study group into geological surveying was established under the Chairmanship of Sir Clifford Butler in October 1985 'To assess the UK needs for geological surveying over the next 5-10 years - its scale, nature and quality - having regard to the longer term prospects for public expenditure’. It received submissions from interested parties and reported in 1986. with those at The correspondence and papers presented here should be consulted in conjunction Consultative Committee on British Support for Geological Science, established by the Institution of Geologists in November 1984, and those at F.378-F.381 re the Royal Society's Panel on Geological Surveying, established toliaise with the Butler study group.

Consultative Committee on British Support for Geological Sciences (CCGS) In responseto the crisis believed to be facing the British Geological Survey (see F.147-F.161) the Institution of Geologists established a Working Group in November 1984 to organise the geological community's response and argue the case for maintained funding of the earth sciences. It agreed at its first meeting to widen its membership by bringing in representatives from industry and to establish itself as the Consultative Committee on British Support for Geological Science Funding for Research in the Geological Sciences. Thefirst Chairman of the Working Group and the Committee was D.C. lon but on his death in September 1985, Kent wasinvited to serve on the Committee as Chairman. The Committee drafted a numberof papers ‘Geological Sciences in danger’, ‘Funding for research in the geological sciences' and ‘Geology and Wealth: the future?’ for circulation and much of the material presented hererelates to the preparation and circulation of the drafts and consideration of comments received at meetings of the Committee.

This was a system of heating which involved passing a low-voltage current through a cable buried in earth or concrete. Kent and Stephen reported favourably on the invention and LASMO decided to invest in the invention. On the issue of shares in the companyin April 1980 LASMO took a 20% share-holding andlent it £240,000. Kent, as the P. E.
