BGS Regional Geophysics has developed a range of Image Atlases of gravity and magnetic anomalies designed to meet the needs of the hydrocarbon and mineral industries.
For further details and prices contact firstname.lastname@example.org
BGS holds a vast database of non-exclusive gravity and magnetic data covering the entire UK onshore and continental shelf. These data have been compiled, together with third-party data, to produce an atlas of high-quality image maps covering key hydrocarbon exploration areas.
Image maps highlight structural information and are particularly effective for identifying faults and structural trends. They provide essential information on the extent and internal structure of sedimentary basins, underlying basement structure, identification of igneous intrusions and regional tectonic framework.
The BGS Geophysical Image Atlas comprises a series of regional volumes, each containing an extensive suite of /geophysics/images of anomalies, gradients and filtered fields at a scale of 1:1 000 000 together with a report and overview of regional structure.
Atlantic margin volumes:
South and west continental shelf volumes:
North Sea volumes
Each volume of the Geophysical Image Atlas contains a suite of up to 25 image maps designed to highlight structural information. These vary between volumes but typical contents may include the following:
Gravity atlas volumes:
Magnetic atlas volumes:
A new interpretation and suite of image maps produced by BGS Regional Geophysics on behalf of the Geological Survey of Northern Ireland and the Department of Economic Development to provide companies with a modern structural framework for the assessment of hydrocarbon and mineral potential.
