The British Geological Survey's National Geological Model is a 3D representation of the UK subsurface. This model shows not only the geological units at the surface (akin to a map), but also their variation with depth.
Models can be used to identify the thickness and order of geological units as well as provide information about how the elevations of geological surfaces vary spatially.
Currently, there are two types of model available:
· Deep, regional-scale models
typically used for natural resource estimates and groundwater studies
· Shallow, local-scale models
typically used for ground investigations, groundwater studies and tunnelling projects
Model coverage will increase over time as we load more models, so please visit us regularly.
