The BGS GeoClimate: shrink–swell national datasets show potential change in subsidence due to changes in climate. They have been developed by combining long term UK Climate Projection (UKCP) scenarios for rainfall and temperature changes with the geotechnical properties of the ground, to identify areas projected to experience the largest increases in susceptibility to subsidence over the next century.
GeoClimate UKCP18 Premium is a quasi-1:50 000-scale product (due to the variable scales of input datasets), provided as area polygons, for two projected 11-year windows, centered on 2030 and 2070. It is based on the UK Climate Projections 2018 (UKCP18) high emissions scenario and provides projections for average, wetter and drier climate conditions. For each scenario it describes five categories of projected susceptibility, from highly unlikely to extremely likely.
