A comprehensive core scanning dataset from the Prees-2C borehole. This borehole was drilled onshore in the Cheshire Basin, Shropshire, UK, in November and December 2020 as part of the JET project (Integrated understanding of Early Jurassic Earth system and timescale - https://gtr.ukri.org/projects?ref=NE 2FN018508 2F1) and principally funded by the ICDP, NERC, and DFG. The approximately 620 m-long Early Jurassic core succession (>99% recovery) mainly comprises mudstone, limestone, and siltstone. The core scanning dataset contains optical images, radiographic images, geophysical and geochemical property data obtained using a Geotek rotating X-ray computed tomography core scanner (RXCT), a Geotek multi-sensor core logger (MSCL-S) and a Cox Analytical Systems XRF core scanner (Itrax MC) at the Core Scanning Facility (CSF) at the British Geological Survey (BGS).
An initial core scanning dataset from the TH0424 borehole that was drilled onshore at Thornton Science Park, Cheshire, UK as part of the UK Geoenergy Observatories (UKGEOS) Cheshire ground investigation funded by UKRI/NERC. The approximately 100 m long core succession comprises the Sherwood Sandstone Group. The core scanning dataset contains X-ray radiographic images and geophysical property data obtained using a Geotek rotating X-ray computed tomography (RXCT) core scanner and a Geotek multi-sensor core logger (MSCL-S) at the Core Scanning Facility (CSF) at the British Geological Survey (BGS).
