  • BIRPS (the British Institutions Reflection Profiling Syndicate) acquired almost 650 km of offshore seismic data and 300 km of onshore seismic data over the Chicxulub impact crater. The data were recorded to 18 s two-way time.

  • Index data from field note record sheets. These records are produced by BGS geologists as part of the geological mapping process and are written descriptions of localities, or sections, or records of measurements taken in the field. Most are linked to a specific field map. The index was setup in 1999 and covers the whole of Great Britain.

  • An index to the manuscript notebook collection was set up in the 1990's. The notebooks themselves contain detailed information gathered by BGS geologists (or other recognised geologists) from various sources as part of the mapping of Great Britain since the 1840s. Examples include observations linked directly to field slips, borehole logs, sections and drawings. All the notebooks held by National Geological Records Centre (NGRC) are indexed but other notebooks held in the Library may not be included. The index is to the notebooks and is not a detailed index of the information in the notebook. Detailed information from coalfield areas is held in the Happs Hall Index. For the basic field mapping work notebooks have now been replaced by field record sheets.

  • This dataset of paper records holds details of analysis of all the sample batches (from both internal and external customers) analysed by the Analytical Geochemistry Laboratory of the BGS since June 1996. It was installed to underpin the UKAS (United Kingdom Accreditation Service) accreditation of the geochemistry laboratories at Keyworth, which was awarded in August 1999. There is a file for each batch of samples submitted for analysis. The file documents the progress of the samples through the laboratories, including sample registration, sample processing, raw data from analytical instruments and the data reported to the client. The records are archived to provide supporting evidence for any query regarding geochemical data provided by the laboratories.

  • The dataset comprises 77 hydrographic data profiles, collected by a conductivity-temperature-depth (CTD) sensor package, from across the Inner Seas off the west coast of Scotland and the North East Atlantic Ocean (limit 40W) area including specifically around the Clyde Sea, the Anton Dohrn - Rockall seamount section (Ellett Line) and the stations in the SES area lines N and S. The data were collected during January of 1996. A complete list of all data parameters are described by the SeaDataNet Parameter Discovery Vocabulary (PDV) keywords assigned in this metadata record. The data were collected by the Dunstaffnage Marine Laboratory.

  • This dataset comprises hydrographic data profiles, collected by a conductivity-temperature-depth (CTD) sensor package, during November 1995. It incorporates a CTD grid survey of the Irish Sea between the Isle of Man and the UK mainland. The data were collected by the Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food Lowestoft Fisheries Laboratory.

  • This dataset comprises hydrographic data profiles, collected by a conductivity-temperature-depth (CTD) sensor package, during January 1996. It incorporates a cruise track of CTD stations from East Anglia, into the Wash, along the UK east coast to the Tyne, down the central Southern North Sea, into the Thames Estaury, along the English Channel, around Cornwall into the Bristol Channel and around the Welsh coast to Sellafield. The data were collected by the Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food Lowestoft Fisheries Laboratory as part of the Joint Nutrient Study II (JoNuS).

  • This dataset comprises hydrographic data profiles, collected by a conductivity-temperature-depth (CTD) sensor package, during May - June 1996. It incorporates four CTD sections. The Joint North Sea Information System (JONSIS) line due east from the Orkneys, two in the Faroe Shetland Channel (Nolso-Flugga and Fair Isle-Munken) and one on the Wyville-Thompson Ridge. The data were collected by the Scottish Office Agriculture Environment and Fisheries Department Aberdeen Marine Laboratory.

  • The dataset comprises 68 hydrographic data profiles, collected by a conductivity-temperature-depth (CTD) sensor package, from across the North Sea and the North East Atlantic Ocean (limit 40W) area specifically the Faroe-Shetland Channel/Viking Bank, during November and December of 1995. A complete list of all data parameters are described by the SeaDataNet Parameter Discovery Vocabulary (PDV) keywords assigned in this metadata record. The data were collected by the Scottish Office Agriculture Environment and Fisheries Department Aberdeen Marine Laboratory.

  • The dataset comprises 76 hydrographic data profiles, collected by a conductivity-temperature-depth (CTD) sensor package, from across the North Sea, Irish Sea and St. George's Channel areas including specifically the North Channel and the Malin Shelf, during June and July of 1996. A complete list of all data parameters are described by the SeaDataNet Parameter Discovery Vocabulary (PDV) keywords assigned in this metadata record. The data were collected by the Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food Lowestoft Fisheries Laboratory.
