Map based index (GeoIndex) offshore seabed samples
The data shows the location of seabed and sub-seabed samples collected from the UK continental shelf, held by BGS. A BGS Sample Station is a general location at which sampling with one or mo ...

Marine Geological Sample Data from around the UK (1966 onwards)
The British Geological Survey has collected over 50000 offshore samples using grabs, dredges and shallow coring devices (to a maximum depth of 6m below the sea bed). The collection also incl ...

Marine Geotechnical Data from around the UK (1975 Onwards)
The data consist of the results of geotechnical testing carried out at various depth intervals on shallow cores or boreholes collected BGS from the UK Continental Shelf. The bulk of the data ...

Marine Hard Substrate Dataset (DiGHardSubstrate250k)
The Marine Hard Substrate dataset maps areas of rock or hard substrate outcropping or within 0.5m of the sea-bed. The interpretation was based on a variety of data sourced from within the Br ...

Marine Photographs Archive (1970 onwards)
The Marine Photographs Archive held by BGS includes photographs of hydrocarbon well and (non-hydrocarbon) marine boreholes, cores and other samples. There are also photographs of the seabed ...

Marine Seabed Sediment Geochemical Data from around the UK (1975-1990)
The concentrations of up to 30 trace elements in approximately 9,000 sea-bed samples from the UK Continental Shelf were determined by BGS using a variety of analytical techniques. In some ca ...

Marine SeaBed Sediment Map - UK Waters - 250k (DigSBS250)
The purpose of this digital dataset is to provide accurate mapping of the distribution of sea-bed sediment types. Sea-bed sediments can only be mapped offshore, where the most recent deposit ...

Marine Sediment Particle Size Data from around the UK (1966 Onwards)
The data set consists of the results of particle size analysis (PSA) performed on approximetaly 29,000 sea-bed sediment samples collected by BGS from the UK Continental Shelf and adjacent de ...
