Borehole Geology Database.

Dataset description

The Borehole Geology database holds downhole lithological / lithostratigraphical data (with unit-bound lithological properties where appropriate) for boreholes identified within the Single Onshore Borehole Index (SOBI), which covers onshore and nearshore Great Britain. The database can store multiple interpretations for each borehole and properties assigned to each coded lithological unit. Available borehole geology properties include porosity, Munsell colour, grainsize, water struck, etc, and other valid property-types can be included when/if required.

Constraints

All BGS staff can view data. Only Data Managers and Log Interpreters can modify their logs. Restricted use of data with certain conditions, depending on information held.
