Deep Seismic Survey Data.

Dataset description

This data set contains the following original data for the deep seismic reflection surveys conducted by the BGS in various parts of the UK. The data consists of observers' logs, surveyors' reports, location data tapes, field data recording tapes and processed data tapes. The processed tapes are at various stages of processing from demultiplexed field data to migrated stack (not all available for all profiles) These data are kept as archive copies. They are generally available for academic and commercial use, subject to payment of fees (and, in a few cases, the agreement of co-owners of the data rights). There are Approximately 20 files of written records and 200 tapes.


Access for most academic and commercial purposes is through the standard BGS Data User Agreement procedure. A data usage fee is payable. Some data are co-owned by a third-party (e.g. a project sponsor). In such cases the intending user must obtain the co-owner's agreement and may have to pay the co-owner a separate fee.
