Sampling water supplies in Cornwall
Households were visited by BGS teams in November 2013, following an invite to take part in the biomonitoring study through direct mailing and follow-up calls. More than 120 households and more than 200 volunteers from across Cornwall participated. Since then, the samples collected have undergone a series of measurements for each of the sample types. The measurements for water data were reported in June 2014 to the households, with biological and soil samples to be reported later in 2014.


Collapsible ground
These new geohazard notes ask: What is collapsible ground? Why does it occur? What is compressible ground? What problems can it cause?


GISGroundwater logo
BGS GISGroundwater is an add-in to ArcGIS that models the depth to groundwater beneath the land surface. For aquifers (permeable water bearing rocks) that are open to the atmosphere (unconfined aquifers) it calculates the elevation of the groundwater table. For aquifers that are confined by overlying impermeable rock it calculates the elevation of the surface (the level groundwater will rise to in a borehole).


This Research Report presents a reviewed and revised lithostratigraphical nomenclature for the Sherwood Sandstone Group (?latest Permian to Mid Triassic).The SSG is composed mainly of brown, red, buff, greenish grey and yellow sandstones of fluvial or aeolian origin. Three options were considered and the ‘clean slate’ option chosen. The constituent formation names proposed are: Helsby Sandstone, Wilmslow Sandstone, Chester, Moira, and Hopwas Breccia formations.
