Ground Geophysical Surveys In The UK Done For Specific Projects.

Dataset description

The database contains an index to over 600 ground geophysical surveys carried out in the UK for a variety of projects. A large number of these surveys were done for the DTI Mineral Reconnaissance Programme in the 1970s and 80s; many others were done at the request of BGS field mapping groups. Information held describes the survey objective, location of measurements, geophysical methods and equipment used, reports and publications, storage locations of data and results (for analogue and digital data), dates and personnel.

Constraints

In principle no restrictions to index information. No charges for index level information, standard BGS charges for geophysical data.
