  • This is a high resolution spatial dataset of Digital Surface Model (DSM) data in South West England. It is a part of outcomes from the CEH South West (SW) Project. There is also a Digital Terrain Model (DTM) dataset covering the same areas available from the SW project. Both DTM and DSM cover an area of 9424 km2 that includes all the land west of Exmouth (i.e. west of circa 3 degrees 21 minutes West). The DSM includes the height of features on the bare earth such as buildings or vegetation (if present). An overview of the TELLUS project is available on the web at http://www.tellusgb.ac.uk/. Full details about this dataset can be found at https://doi.org/10.5285/b81071f2-85b3-4e31-8506-cabe899f989a

  • This is a high resolution spatial dataset of Digital Terrain Model (DTM) data in South West England. The DTM along with a Digital Surface Model (DSM) cover an area of 9424 km2 that includes all the land west of Exmouth (i.e. west of circa 3 degrees 21 minutes West). The DTM represents the topographic model (height) of the bare earth. The dataset is a part of outcomes from the Centre for Ecology & Hydrology South West (SW) Project. There is also a Digital Surface Model (DSM) dataset covering the same areas available from the SW project. Full details about this dataset can be found at https://doi.org/10.5285/e2a742df-3772-481a-97d6-0de5133f4812

  • This marine multibeam and geophysical survey took place in June 2011 in the Ardmucknish Bay area on board the BGS survey vessel RV White Ribbon. The survey was carried out by the British Geological Survey (BGS) in collaboration with Scottish Association for Marine Science (SAMS) and National Oceanography Centre (SAMS). QICS (Quantifying and monitoring potential ecosystem impacts of geological carbon storage) was a scientific research project funded by NERC. The purpose was to collect the data necessary to identify a potential directional drilling route from shore to a submerged gas release point. Sea floor bathymetry data were collected using an EM3002D. Sub bottom seismic profiling data were collected using a surface tow boomer. These data are archived by BGS. Upon completion of the QICS study area additional seismic profiles were collected in the neighbourhood. Technical details of the survey are contained in BGS Report of Survey. Webpage www.bgs.ac.uk/QICS/.

  • This geophysical and sampling survey has been undertaken by University College of North Wales (UCNW) for Natural Environment Research Council (NERC), the survey took place in June 1993 in The Wash on board the MV Petroswift. The purpose was to collect data as part of the NERC Land-Ocean Interaction Study (LOIS). British Geological Survey were a participant in the study. Sea floor data were collected using echo sounder. Sub-bottom profiling data were collected using surface tow boomer. Sample data were collected using mini Van Veen Grab Sampler. Navigation positioning Trisponder system. These data are archived by UCNW. Survey details are contained in University College of North Wales report “Geophysical studies in the Humber and Tees Estuaries and the Fenland/Wash area by A. M. Davies, J. D. Bennel, J. Butcher, C. Hartfall, I. Richarson and B. Williams”. NERC contract F60/G12/15.

  • This NERC marine sampling survey took place in April 1995 in the North East Atlantic Ocean on board the RRS Charles Darwin. The purpose was to identify suitable sites on the LOIS northern mooring line for benthic process studies and carry out the first set of process measurements in the LOIS study at these sites. BGS collected three box core samples. Survey details contained in Dunstaffnage Marine Laboratory Cruise report 92/95.

  • This British Geological Survey (BGS) marine geophysical and multibeam survey took place in April 2012 in the area of Ardmucknish Bay on board the RV White Ribbon. This was a follow up survey to the previous work carried out in this area in 2011 (2011/4). QICS (Quantifying and monitoring potential ecosystem impacts of geological carbon storage) was a scientific research project funded by NERC; its purpose was to improve the understanding of the sensitivities of the UK marine environment to a potential leak from a carbon capture storage (CCS) system. The aim of the survey was to assess any affect the drilling of the borehole had on the underlying sediments. Sea floor bathymetry data were collected using a Kongsberg EM3002D multibeam system. Sub bottom seismic profiling data were collected using an Applied Acoustics surface tow boomer (STB). These data are archived by BGS. Technical details of the survey are contained in the BGS Report of Survey. Webpage www.bgs.ac.uk/QICS/.

  • This 2D Hi-resolution multichannel seismic survey took place September 2009 in the North Channel Basin offshore NE Ireland on board the Fugro Meridian. The survey was carried out by Fugro on behalf of Natural Environment Research Council (NERC)/Department of Enterprise, Trade and Investment (DETI). The aim was the evaluation of the potential development of offshore gas cavern storage sites in the salt formations of the Permo-Trias. These data are archived by BGS. Technical details of the survey are contained in FugroReport No.: FSLTD 29-00050 and futher information is available in the reports, A geological interpretation of the nearshore area between Belfast Lough and Cushendun, Northern Ireland, utilising a newly acquired 2D seismic dataset to evaluate salt layers for their potential for gas storage in salt caverns (http://nora.nerc.ac.uk/id/eprint/516832/) and A geomorphological interpretation of multibeam data, nearshore area between Belfast Lough and Cushendun, Northern Ireland (http://nora.nerc.ac.uk/id/eprint/530766/).

  • This marine geophysical survey took place on 1st October 2014 in the area of Ardmucknish Bay on board the RV White Ribbon. The survey was carried out by the British Geological Survey (BGS). This was a follow up survey to the previous work carried out in this area (Surveys: 2011/4 and 2012/5, 2012/7) to monitor changes in the geometry of gas charged sediments. QICS (Quantifying and monitoring potential ecosystem impacts of geological carbon storage) was a scientific research project funded by NERC; its purpose was to improve the understanding of the sensitivities of the UK marine environment to a potential leak from a carbon capture storage (CCS) system. Sub bottom seismic profiling data were collected using an Applied Acoustics surface tow boomer (STB). These data are archived by BGS. Webpage www.bgs.ac.uk/QICS/. NERC grant NE/H013954/1.
