National geophysical survey

The British Geological Survey will be carrying out geophysical surveys in selected areas in England this year, with a complete 3D map of the UK being the long-term aim. Selection of sights to participate in surveys depends on interest (and financial backing) from stakeholders, specifically the industry or owner that decides to undertake the work. To date the English sites have been undertaken to assess potential for unconventional shale gas extraction (or fracking). Other potential motives for a survey could include investigating ground water sources, potential for conventional oil & gas exploration, potential for geothermal energy, carbon capture storage, and of course, interest in the geological history of an area – with perhaps an eye on what tourism benefits it might bring.
