Evaluation of the potential palaeoclimate record within Pakistan loess
Loess deposits in Pakistan are found intercalated with pink silts and torrent gravels. These provide a stratigraphical record of environmental change in a region of Asia, south of the Himala ...

Evaluation of tropical forests sensitivity to past climate changes (FORSENS) (NERC grant NE/J018562/1)
The dataset is the output of a NERC fellowship aimed to understand the long-term dynamics of tropical vegetation through palaeoecological analysis. For doing this, two sedimentary archives ( ...

Evolutionary lessons from the extinct giant American cats: phylogeography, palaeoecology, and extinction of sabertooths, cheetahs and lions
Ancient DNA will be used to reconstruct the evolutionary and paleoecological relationships of the top predators of the late Pleistocene: the giant felids (sabertooths, lion, cheetah, jaguar, ...

Geological interpreted superficial deposits thickness models version 2.1, GI_SDTM v2.1
A superficial thickness model covering England Scotland and Wales. The model is derived by direct modelling (natural neighbour interpolation) of BGS Borehole records and BGS Digmap. For the ...

Heavy mineral and bulk petrography data from modern, Quaternary and Cenozoic loess, sand and river sediment samples from northern China (NERC grant NE/I008837/1)
Files contain heavy mineral (HM) and framework petrography data for samples taken from sediments across Northern China, from Tarim in the west to Ordos in central north China. The data come ...

Investigating physical processes at ice-stream beds: integrating modern and palaeo-ice stream records
Ice streams are responsible for most of the drainage from modern ice sheets and they exerted a similar influence on past ice sheets. Understanding the controls on ice streams is critical in ...

IODP Exp 346: Onset and Evolution of Millennial-scale variability of the Asian monsoon (NERC Grant NE/L002655/1)
This award was made as a sailing participant of IODP Expedition 346, an international ocean drilling programme that NERC subscribe to. As such there was a lot of data generated that is owned ...

Map based index (GeoIndex) UTM (Universal Transverse Mercator) series 1:250000 Geological Maps
This layer of the Map based index (GeoIndex) shows the location of available UTM (Universal Transverse Mercator) series 1:250000 geological maps. These maps display Bedrock, Quaternary (Supe ...

Superficial Deposit Thickness dataset (1km Hex-Grid)
This dataset shows the variation of the thickness of Superficial (Quaternary age) deposits across Great Britain. The data are presented as a vector map of interlocking hexagon cells (side le ...

Superficial Deposits Thickness Models, SDTM
A series of tiled models of superficial thickness covering the UK. The models are derived by direct modelling (natural neighbour interpolation) of BGS Borehole records and BGS Digmap. For t ...
