Recent awards and distinctions include the Schlumberger Award of the Mineralogical Society of Gt Britain & Ireland (2014), Pilkington Teaching Award (2013), a Royal Society Wolfson Research Merit Award (2006-2012), the Institute of Physics’ award of the Chree Medal and Prize (2005) for ‘pioneering contributions to the study of magnetic signals from the geological record as a means of determining climatic changes’), Chairmanship of the Rock Magnetism Group, International Union of Geophysics and Geodesy, 2002 – 2006 (and re-elected Chair, 2006 – 2008), and Vice-presidency of the Quaternary Research Association, 2008 - 2010.
Her major research interests are in Environmental Magnetism and Palaeomagnetism, for purposes of retrieving palaeoclimatic, palaeoenvironmental and dating information from the magnetic records of Quaternary terrestrial sediments (soils, loess, tills, lake sediments), deep-sea sediments, and pre-Quaternary rocks.

The GMP is fully based on the EN ISO 19115 (for datasets, series) and EN ISO 19119 (for services) international standards.
The GMP is also compliant with the INSPIRE Metadata Regulation (Nr. In order to directly display a metadata record (geological or applied geological map) for which an on-line map service is available, the Metadata Catalogue is integrated into the One Geology-Europe Portal.
The national geological map data, maintained and provided by 21 national geological survey organizations, are presented in this Metadata Catalogue in a form of datasets, dataset series or where available as on-line services.
She leads the international Working Group (INQUA ‘DIRTMAP3’ and NERC-QUEST) on Dust and Climate. She is also involved in the application of magnetic methods to current environmental processes and problems, including magnetic monitoring and sourcing of particulate pollutants, tracing of modern fluvial sediment sources, and magnetic 'clean-up' of contaminated waters. The spatial-temporal characteristics and health impacts of ambient fine particulate matter in China Song, Y., Wang, X., Maher, B. The Geological Metadata Catalogue, developed within the framework of the One Geology-Europe e Content plus project, provides the means for searching (Metadata Search) national geological and applied geological map data ranging from the scale of ,000 to 1:1 million.The Catalogue also offers a SW tool, fully multilingual, for creation and-or editing metadata records (Metadata Editor).
Both the One Geology-Europe Portal and the Metadata Catalogue build together a unique multilingual system for discovery, view and use of geological data across Europe.Barbara is Professor and co-Director of LEC’s internationally-renowned Centre for Environmental Magnetism & Palaeomagnetism, Lancaster University.
