BIRPS (British Institutes Reflection Profiling Syndicate) Deep Seismic Reflection Data from the UK and North-West European Continental Shelf (1981-1991)

Dataset description

The British Institutions Reflection Profiling Syndicate (BIRPS) shot approximately 12,000 km of deep, multi-channel seismic reflection data around the British Isles from 1981 to 1991 during 14 surveys. Recording depths vary depending on the purpose of the survey but range from 15 s to 40 s two-way time. Raw and processed digital data are archived by BGS who make the data available subject to the cost of reproduction and handling. Seismic sections and other analogue ancillary data are available for some surveys. Gravity and magnetic data may also be available.

Constraints

BIRPS data is made freely available under Open Government Licence subject to distribution charge costs (if required).
