This BIRPS deep profile survey took place in September 1991 off Cape Verde aboard the Bin Hai. The layout of the profiles consisted of two lines parallel to the spreading axis and nine lines perpendicular to the axis. The line spacing was 4 km so that structure within the oceanic basement could be mapped in three dimensions.
This BIRPS onshore deep seismic reflection experiment carried out in Weardale in September 1988 was aimed at detecting deep crustal reflectors and establishing the physical properties of the lower crust. The data was recorded digitally and is archived by BGS. Report unavailable.
This British Geological Survey (BGS) marine sampling and geophysical survey took place from the May to June 1975 in the North Sea on board the RRS John Murray. Sub-bottom seismic profiling data were collected using Pinger and Sparker. Sample data were collected using dredge, gravity corer and shipek grab. These records are archived by BGS. No cruise report available.
Multichannel airgun survey carried out in the SW Approaches during October 1976; March, April, December 1977. Coverage 2564Km.
During the period 31 January 1977 to 15th February 1977 approximately 490km of subsurface data in UK blocks 97 and 98 (Bournemouth Bay) were acquired for The Institute of Geological Sciences (BGS) by S & A Geophysical Ltd and subsequently processed by them at their Swanley, England processing centre. survey vessel: M/V Oil Hunter.
This geophysical and sampling survey has been carried out by Institute of Geological Sciences now British Geological Survey (BGS) for BGS, the survey took place in September 1975 mainly in the area of Haig Fras on board the MV Gardline Locator. Shallow geophysical surey work took place at night with sampling operations during the day.The purpose was to collect data as part of the UK regional mapping programme. Sub-bottom profiling data were collected using pinger and sparker. Sea-bed samples were collected using a gravity corer and shipek grab. These data are archived by BGS. No BGS survey report currently available, IGS 1975 annual report contains summary..
This high resolution marine multi-channel seismic survey commissioned by the Institute of Geological Sciences on behalf of Department of Energy took place in the Northern North Sea during 1st-27th November 1979 (Phase 1) aboard MV Aqua Star and 1st-14th February 1980 (Phase2) aboard Gardline Tracker. Phase 1 (Lines 1-5) was carried out by Fairfield Auatronics Ltd and Phase 2 (lines 5B-9) by Gardline surveys Ltd. Line coverage total 445km (Phase1 - 180km; Phase 2 - 265km). Sea floor data were collected using Echo sounder. Subsurface seismic data were gathered using a 9/15KJ sparker and line 4, Fairflex sleeve exploder. Survey details are contained in Fairfield and gardline acquisition reports and BGS technical report WB/MG/81/124.
This British Geological Survey (BGS) marine geophysical survey took place in December 1969 in the Firth of Clyde on board the MV Stella Maris. The purpose was to investigate the superficial deposits of the clyde area, this survey was Phase 4 of a 5 phase project. Sea floor data were collected using echosounder. Sub-bottom seismic profiling data were collected using Pinger and Sparker. These records are archived by BGS. Details of the survey are contained in IGS report 73/9.
This geophysical survey has been undertaken by University College of North Wales (UCNW) for Natural Environment Research Council (NERC), the survey took place in March 1993 in the Humber flats and marches 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. Sub-bottom profiling data were collected using surface tow boomer. 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.
