This sampling survey was a trial with the MV Wimpey Sealab to drill in water depths greater than the depth in which the Whitethorn could operate. Five boreholes were drilled before a contract was awarded for further boreholes in North Sea.
The dataset describes the relative vulnerability of groundwater to contamination across Scotland, by means of five relative classes ranging from 1 (lowest vulnerability) to 5 (highest vulnerability). The dataset is a screening tool that can be used to show the relative threat to groundwater quality from contamination across Scotland. It can provide guidance on the vulnerability of groundwater at a regional scale, highlighting areas at comparatively higher risk of groundwater contamination, and can help indicate the degree of specific site investigation required for a new development or activity. It is designed to be used at a scale of 1:100,000 and should be regarded as a tool to aid groundwater risk assessment rather than a complete solution.

This marine geophysical and multibeam survey was undertaken in July/August 2012 off south-west Tiree by the British Geological Survey (BGS) on behalf of Marine Scotland on board the Northern Lighthouse Board vessel NLV Polestar. Sea floor bathymetry data were collected using a Kongsberg EM3002D multibeam system. Sub bottom seismic profiling data were collected using a surface tow boomer. The data are archived by BGS and are also available on Marine Scotland Interactive (MSI) - http://www.gov.scot/Topics/marine/science/MSInteractive/Themes/Renewables/Data. Multibeam bathymetry data are available from the UKHO Bathy DAC, https://www.gov.uk/guidance/inspire-portal-and-medin-bathymetry-data-archive-centre. Backscatter data are available from the backscatter layers in the BGS Offshore GeoIndex. Technical details of the survey are contained in BGS Report of Survey CR/12/099, https://nora.nerc.ac.uk/id/eprint/529501/.

An oil and gas industry exploration drilling site survey acquired under licence P2047 in April 2014. The block number traversed was 29/4b.
The data provides a summary of volcanic ash samples collected from around Anak Krakatau, Indonesia, in August 2019, originating from the December 2018 eruption. The ash was generated in eruptions immediately following the sector collapse of Anak Krakatau. The data provides a summary of sample locations, brief information on the sample context (original notebook entries for the field sites, alongside summary stratigraphic descriptions), componentry information for selected ash samples, laser-diffraction grain-size information for the ash samples, whole rock XRF compositional analysis of selected samples, and EPMA mineral analyses from selected samples.

The North of Celtic Deep rMCZ survey was carried out during 7th – 9th February 2012 on the RV CEFAS Endeavour cruise CEND 03/12. Multibeam bathymetry and backscatter data were collected in between sampling stations. These data are archived with the Marine Environmental Data and Information Network (MEDIN) Data Archive Centres (DACs) including the British Geological Survey (BGS) DAC for geology and geophysics, The Archive for Marine Species and Habitats Data (DASSH) and the United Kingdom Hydrographic Office (UKHO) bathymetry DAC. The full site data package including raw is also available on request from BGS.
This British Geological Survey (BGS) marine geophysical survey took place from August to September 1969 in the Outer Humber area off Spurn Head, on board the MV Moray Firth IV. The purpose was to collect data as part of a regional mapping programme. Sea floor data were collected using Transit Sonar and Sidescan Sonar. Sub-bottom seismic profiling data were collected using Surface Tow Boomer; Pinger and Sparker. These data are archived by BGS. Technical details of the survey are contained in BGS report WB/MG/69/4.
This British Geological Survey (BGS) marine geophysical survey took place in September 2010 in the area SW of Little Cumbrae Island, Scotland on board the RV White Ribbon. The purpose was to contribute to the geological interpretations for the Marine Environmental Mapping Programme (MAREMAP) and the Clyde Basin Project. Multibeam bathymetry data were collected using a Kongsberg EM3002D. The data are archived by BGS. Technical details of the survey are contained in survey operations documentation.
This British Geological Survey (BGS) marine geophysical and multibeam and survey took place in June/July 2012 in the area of Loch Broom and Gruinard Bay on board the RV White Ribbon. 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.
