  • This sampling survey has been carried out by British Geological Survey (BGS) for the Rockall Consortium, the survey took place from to June-July 1999 in the Hatton and Rockall Banks, west of Shetland, Faroe-Shetland Channel areas on board the MS Bucentaur. The purpose was to collect data as part of the Rockall Consortium to provide an insight into the largely undefined geology of the Hatton Bank and Faeroe Bank area and provide further calibration for seismic data in the west of Shetland area. Sample data (boreholes) were collected using wireline drilling equipment. These data are archived by BGS. Technical details of the survey are contained in BGS report WB/19/16C. Geological details are contained in BGS report WB/99/21C.

  • This geophysical survey has been carried out by Digicon Geophysical, for British Geological Survey (BGS), the Multichannel Deep Seismic survey took place from July to August 1993 in the Rockall area on board the MV Acadian Searcher. The purpose was to collect data as part of Rockall Continental Margin Project: 1) to shoot a grid of lines on eastern flank of Rockall Bank; 2) to shot three long transect lines across Rockall Bank and the Rockall-Hatton Basin down to 18sec two-way time; 3) to acquire gravity data. Sub-bottom profiling data were collected using Airguns. Gravity data were collected. These data were recorded digitally and are archived by BGS. Technical details of the survey are contained in BGS report WB/93/28C and contractor report. GeoIndex Offshore - https://mapapps2.bgs.ac.uk/geoindex_offshore/home.html?cruise=1993/2_RCK&.

  • This British Geological Survey (BGS) marine geophysical survey took place in May to July 2000 in the Hatton and Rockall Banks aboard the RV Colonel Templer. This was a regional geophysical survey to gather high resolution seismic, gravity and magnetic data of the area. A total of 5611km of data were collected in a grid of 58 survey tracks using a suite of seismic instruments (airgun, sparker and echo sounder) and also gravity meter and magnetometer. The data was recorded digitally and is archived by BGS. Technical details of the survey are contained in BGS Internal Reports CR/00/42 (https://nora.nerc.ac.uk/id/eprint/529920/) & CR/01/07.

  • This marine sampling survey comprised four 2-week legs and formed part of the Rockall Continental Margin Project. It was undertaken from April to June 1994 in the Hatton-Rockall area of the north Atlantic on board the MV Kommandor Therese. The purpose was: 1) to obtain short sea-bed cores for geological calibration of high-resolution seismic profiles obtained in 1992 as part of the same project. 2) to obtain short sea-bed gravity cores, targeted at specific structures, and subsequently geochemically analyse subsamples from these for traces of hydrocarbons. Sea-bed samples and cores were collected using Gravity corer, Vibrocorer and Rockdrill. These data are archived by BGS. Technical details of the survey are contained in BGS Technical Report WB/94/20C. Geological and geochemical results are contained in report WB/95/11C. Extra geochemical results are contained in WI/95/14C.

  • This sampling survey has been carried out by British Geological Survey (BGS) for BGS, the survey took place in September 1994 in the Rockall Bank/Rockall Trough area on board the MS Bucentaur. The purpose was to collect borehole data as part of the Rockall continental Margin Project. Sample data were collected at seven borehole sites using wireline drilling equipment. These data are archived by BGS. Technical details of the survey are contained in BGS report WB/94/30C.

  • This marine geophysical survey took place from 03/05/1992 – 10/07/1992 in the Rockall Continental Margin on board the Kommandor Michael. The survey was carried out by the British Geological Survey (BGS). The aim of the survey was to investigate the shallow seismic structure along the eastern margin of the Rockall Bank, Northern Rockall Trough and adjacent banks. Sub bottom seismic profiling data were collected using Airgun, Sparker and Deep Tow Boomer systems. Gravity and Magnetic data were also acquired. These data are archived by BGS.

  • This Rockall Consortium marine geophysical and sampling survey took place in May/June 1998 in the area of West Shetland, Northern Rockall Trough and Hatton Bank on board RRS Challenger. Subsurface seismic data were collected with an airgun and sparker. Bathymetry data was collected with a Simrad EA500. Seabed samples were collected with a gravity corer. Technical details of the survey are contained in BGS Report WB/92/42C, https://nora.nerc.ac.uk/id/eprint/529921/. https://mapapps2.bgs.ac.uk/geoindex_offshore/home.html?cruise=1998/1_RCK&.
