  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Data from the Total Ozone Mapping Spectrometer (TOMS), which used backscattered ultraviolet radiance to infer total column ozone measurements (gridded daily for the entire globe). This 2 CD-ROM set contains the latest version (version 7) of reflectivity data from the TOMS (Total Ozone Mapping Spectrometer) instrument onboard the Nimbus 7 spacecraft. Data covering the entire Nimbus 7 TOMS lifetime, November 1, 1978 through May 6, 1993, are given as daily files of gridded data, as zonal means, and as monthly averages. A similar CD-ROM set (OPT_004A and OPT_004B) containing TOMS total ozone values is also currently available. A CD-ROM of version 7 data from the Meteor 3 TOMS instrument (August 1991 - December 1994) will be produced soon.

This 2 CD-ROM set contains the latest version (version 7) of ozone data from the TOMS (Total Ozone Mapping Spectrometer) instrument onboard the Nimbus 7 spacecraft. Data covering the entire Nimbus 7 TOMS lifetime, November 1, 1978 through May 6, 1993, are given as daily files of gridded data, as zonal means, and as monthly averages. Software is included to image the data. For scientific investigators, a similar CD-ROM containing TOMS surface reflectivity values is planned. A CD-ROM of version 7 data from the Meteor 3 TOMS instrument (August 1991 - December 1994) will be produced this summer.

  • 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.

  • Sky images collected by a JVC KYF55-BE digital camera over Sparsholt College, Hampshire. The data were collected from 5th of July 1996 to end of 1997 before the camera was relocated to the main Chilbolton Observatory, Hampshire. See the linked instrument details record (under the Process information) for subsequent data from this instrument.

  • 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.

  • Data from the Total Ozone Mapping Spectrometer (TOMS), which used backscattered ultraviolet radiance to infer total column ozone measurements (gridded daily for the entire globe). This CD-ROM contains one file for each day from November 1, 1978 to March 6, 1993 (with a few missing days). Each file contains data representing the relative daily areal exposures of ultraviolet (UV) radiation effective in causing skin irritation, computed at each 1 degree latitude by 1.25 degree longitude pixel, between latitudes 65S and 65N. These data were derived from measurements made by NASA's Total Ozone Mapping Spectrometer (TOMS), which was flown aboard the Nimbus-7 satellite.

  • This dataset comprises hydrographic data profiles, collected by a conductivity-temperature-depth (CTD) sensor package, during November 1996. It incorporates CTD sections between the Scottish mainland/Mull and the Inner Hebrides and between the Inner Hebrides and the Outer Hebrides. The data were collected by the Scottish Office Agriculture Environment and Fisheries Department Aberdeen Marine Laboratory as part of a a large scale hydrographic, chemistry, biology and sediment survey of the Minches area.
