Where corresponding multibeam echosounder data were acquired, these data have been archived with the United Kingdom Hydrographic Office (UKHO). Overarching full archaeological investigation, including results of the assessment of these data, and technical reports are archived with the Archaeology Data Service (ADS) (https://doi.org/10.5284/1083494).
Between 2001 and 2003 BGS received approximately 1400 1:25 000 paper maps and associated card index from the Office of the Deputy Prime Minister (now Department for Communities and Local Government (CLG)). The maps, originally compiled by the Minerals Division of the Ministry of Housing and Local Government (CLGs historic predecessor), contain hand drawn boundaries for permitted, withdrawn and refused mineral planning permissions, and worked ground. They also contain hand drawn boundaries for land use at each site. These 'MHLG' maps show information collated from the 1940s (retrospectively to 1930) to the mid 1980s. The index cards provide supplementary information regarding name, operator, dates and relevant local authority. Data depicted on the maps are for England only and include; [a] all planning appeals, departures and called in cases whether permitted or refused; [b] all planning permission and refusal data for various local authority areas which were obtained by Departmental officials through visits to authorities in a staged programme spread over many years. Priority was placed on areas that were giving rise to then current casework issues thus at the time when the maintenance of the maps ended (mid 1985), some authority information had been updated recently but other areas had not been visited for many years. [c] land use present at each site. Categories include: derelict areas, restored quarries (filled and unfilled), tip heaps and spoil heaps, and wet areas. The variable completeness of the data sets should be kept in mind when this material is being used. Land use polygons have been digitised from the MHLG maps and attribute information has been provided from the map legend and the appropriate card in the card index. The principal aim of the data is to show land use present in areas of land that have been affected by the extraction of minerals.
Non -contact atomic force microscopy (NC-AFM) images of surface nanobubbles on the fluorcarbonate mineral synchysite. Synchysite is a rare earth fluorcarbonate mineral which has previously been relatively unstudied. Since nanobubbles were first imaged in 2000, they have been thought to play a intigral role in mineral processing. Images of nanobubbles were produced under collector reagent conditions favourable to flotation. These are the first images of nanobubbles on the fluorcarbonate mineral synchysite. Nanobubbles at the surface of synchysite improve the understanding of both flotation and nanobubble formation.
Ar/Ar dating of samples from Aluto and Corbetti volcanoes, Ethiopia. Data are referenced in Hutchison et al., 2016b: A pulse of mid-Pleistocene rift volcanism in Ethiopia at the dawn of modern humans; https://doi.org/10.1038/ncomms13192

High-pressure multi anvil synchrotron data from ID06-LVP at the ESRF. Contains diffraction, radiography, MHz ultrasonic and calibration data from experiments performed to ~ 13 GPa on CaSiO3 perovskite and Ca[Si60Ti40]O3 perovskite samples.
The data contain the results of model of a conductively cooling planetesimal with a radius of 250 km and a core radius of 125 km. Two data files are included: one for a model run which uses constant values for thermal properties (conductivity, heat capacity, and density) while the second uses temperature-dependent functions for these properties. Further details of the model in Murphy Quinlan et al., (in prep). Four arrays are included in each of the compressed data files: mantle temperature array; core temperature array; mantle cooling-rate array; core cooling-rate array. All arrays are the same size (125 by 126229) and hold data for radii values through time, with a radius-step of 1 km and time-step of 1E11 seconds over a total time period of 400 Myr.
The data sets contain the rating curves and equations, approved stage (H) discharge (Q) data for the purposed of building river rating information for three hydrometric stations: 3KD06 and KISCOL weir on Mukurumudzi River and Eshu Bridge on Ramisi River, in Kwale.

These plagioclase and clinopyroxene mineral chemical and Sr isotope data come from Unit 10, Rum Layered Suite, NW Scotland. They underpin a publication entitled 'Rapid crystallisation of precious metal-mineralised layers in mafic magmatic systems', to be published in Nature Geoscience in 2020.
