The BGS produces a variety of maps on geophysical topics
Small scale geophysical maps are available covering the British Isles in either single or double sheets.
The themes covered include gravity (Bouguer & Free-air) maps, magnetic maps, Natural Environment Radioactivity Survey Series Maps.

While 'standard' geological mapping techniques describe the surface and near-surface rocks, geophysical techniques are needed to look deeper.
This interactive guide covers South-east England, where Cainozoic and Mesozoic sedimentary strata cover the vast majority of the region. Gravity and aeromagnetic data provide insights into the older, underlying sedimentary strata, the deeper basement and the intrusions within the basement. …more…
While standard geological mapping techniques describe the surface and near-surface rocks, geophysical techniques are needed to look deeper.
This interactive guide covers Southern Scotland and Northern England, where the geophysical data provides insights into the components of the basement rocks, which were originally part of widely separated continents. Data on younger intrusive and sedimentary bodies is also provided.
