Rare earth elements (REE) are naturally occurring chemical elements that are found in a wide range of geological environments. They are a group of chemically similar, metallic elements that are of increasing interest because they have a variety of applications:
- a diverse range of consumer electronics (including mobile phones)
- environmental technologies (including batteries and wind turbines)
- industrial applications
The dataset consists of a series of interpolated raster (ASCII) grids and maps displaying the distributions of the REEs in stream sediments in south-west England.
South-west England REE interpolated maps and grids with a supporting user guide are available to download.
