Geochemical atlas of European groundwater : bottled water
Analysis of natural bottled mineral water (usually derived from untreated ground water) can provide a first impression of ground water chemistry at the European scale. For this study, 1785 bottled water samples were purchased from supermarkets, representing 1247 wells/springs/boreholes at 884 locations. These were analysed for 72 parameters by a variety of methods. These give a first impression of European ground water geochemistry.

Mapping the chemical environment of London, UK : an important contribution to understanding national levels of normal background contaminant concentrations
In May 2011 the British Geological Survey (BGS) released the results from the largest systematic urban geochemical mapping survey ever undertaken - 'London Earth' - Soils were sampled at a density of four samples per kilometre square from the Greater London Authority Area and nearly 7000 topsoil samples were analysed for more than 50 elements by X-ray fluorescence spectrometry (XRFS) and other soil parameters such as pH and loss on ignition.

Regional geochemical mapping in Nigeria : results from the collaborative project between the Nigerian Geological Survey Agency and the British Geological Survey
Systematic regional geochemical mapping in Nigeria commenced in 2007 inspired by the IGCP Project 259  A global geochemical database for environmental and resource management. This geochemical mapping programme was given impetus by the World Bank funded project (2008-2011)between the British Geological Survey and the Nigerian Geological Survey Agency.
