Browsing downloads in "UK3D - 3D geological model for United Kingdom"

The UK3D geological model uses digital cross-sections of the geology across United Kingdom and joins them up in a 'fence diagram'. You can open cross sections of UK3D, in Google Earth for example, to rotate, tilt and zoom into an area of interest and interrogate a geological layer - at depth - at your point of interest.

The construction of a bedrock geology model for England and Wales
The objective of this study was to further develop the GB3D model in England and Wales by the incorporation of about 300 deep boreholes into the existing framework of cross-sections, reroute some sections to incorporate the borehole data and provide additional sections to densify the network in order to produce a robust, verifiable and defensible dataset.

The construction of a bedrock geology model for the UK: UK3D_v2015
This report describes the 2015 version of the UK3D National Bedrock Fence Diagram produced by a mixture of EA funded, NDA/RWM contracts and BGS National Capability projects between 2009-15. The fence diagram, comprising the UK3D_v2015 dataset, is the subject of this report and is now available in a variety of formats from the BGS website as free downloads.

UK 3D Cross-sections 2015 (3D Shapefile with layer file)
304 cross-sections showing the bedrock stratigraphy at 1:625 000 scale in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. These sections range from approximately 1.5 km to 6 km in depth. The sections have been split up into regions based on the regional geology memoir boundaries.
