    A brief description of ten core plug samples collected from borehole GGC01 (Glasgow, United Kingdom) is provided, as well as for twelve 15-50 g cuttings samples from 1m intervals within borehole GGA08. Samples were also collected from borehole GGA02 but not used for further analyses. Data comprise results from geomechanical tests, permeability and porosity measurements, and X-Ray Diffraction analyses performed on drillcore samples of sandstones, siltstones, mudstones and coals from eleven depth intervals within the GGC01 borehole. Geomechanical data include triaxial compressional strength, tensile strength, and frictional strength. Frictional strength data was also collected for cuttings samples of sandstones, siltstones, mudstones and coals from the GGA08 borehole. In total twenty-three tensile strength tests were performed on ten sampled intervals, and seven porosity measurements pre-and post-failure were taken. Nine triaxial compressive strength tests and twenty-one frictional strength tests were performed, with permeability measured both before and after failure or shear respectively. From compressive strength tests we also determined the Young’s modulus and Poisson’s ratio. Samples and data are derived from the UK Geoenergy Observatories Programme funded by the UKRI Natural Environment Research Council and delivered by the British Geological Survey.

    Apatite Fission Track (AFT) single grain count and horizontal confined track length data acquired from 6 sandstones samples from UKGEOS Glasgow borehole GGC01 drilled in the Dalmarnock area of Glasgow. The sandstones were retrieved from depths of 65, 98, 135, 150, 168 and 198 metres and were Westphalian in age coming from the Middle and Lower Scottish coal measures. Each sample has its BGS Subsample SSK number and an ascribed name in reference to its depth of collection with the added initials of the researcher i.e., 65 AH. The data is presented in 2 files one containing the AFT count data and the other containing the AFT length measurements. The AFT count data of each sample is found in excel file containing the spontaneous and induced track counts of a grain and accessory data of that grain e.g., the calculated age (calculated using the program Isoplotr) and calculated uranium concentration. The AFT length data of each sample comes in a separate excel file with the measured lengths and c-axis corrected lengths of HCTs of a sample, all Dpar measurements are also listed here. Samples and data are derived from the UK Geoenergy Observatories Programme funded by the UKRI Natural Environment Research Council and delivered by the British Geological Survey.

    IDA267644 Methane and CO2 gas concentrations and stable isotope analyses of select core samples from GGC01 borehole of the Glasgow UKGEOS facility. Core samples were collected approximately every 10m depth in gas tight isojars by the BGS. Geochemical gas analyses was carried out at the Scottish Universities Environmental Research Centre (SUERC) and consisted of bulk concentration analysis using gas chromatography; followed by δ13CCH4, δ13CCO2, and δD stable isotope analyses on a methane combustion line (full methods attached). This data was collected to investigate the variability of gas fingerprints with depth within the Glasgow coal mine workings, and unmined Carboniferous coal measures. Samples and data are derived from the UK Geoenergy Observatories Programme funded by the UKRI Natural Environment Research Council and delivered by the British Geological Survey.

    IDA272269 Methane and CO2 gas concentrations and stable isotope analyses of cutting samples from GGA05 and GGA08 boreholes of the Glasgow UKGEOS facility. Cutting samples were collected approximately every 3m depth in gas tight isojars by the BGS. Geochemical gas analyses was carried out at the Scottish Universities Environmental Research Centre (SUERC) and consisted of bulk concentration analysis using gas chromatography; followed by δ13CCH4, δ13CCO2, and δD stable isotope analyses on a methane combustion line (full methods attached). This data was collected to investigate the variability of gas fingerprints with depth within the Glasgow coal mine workings, and unmined Carboniferous coal measures.

    Loan IDA number IDA271576. Microbial DNA concentrations from DNA extraction using Qiagen PowerSoil Pro DNA Extraction kit and subsequent PCR from shale and sandstone core samples collected and preserved for microbiology (shale SSK111456 and sandstone SSK111457) from UKGEOS Glasgow Observatory, borehole GGC01. DNA extractions and subsequent amplification using PCR indicate levels of microbial DNA below detection limits. Samples and data are derived from the UK Geoenergy Observatories Programme funded by the UKRI Natural Environment Research Council and delivered by the British Geological Survey.

    The newGeoSure Insurance Product (newGIP) provides the potential insurance risk due to natural ground movement. It incorporates the combined effects of the 6 GeoSure hazards on (low-rise) buildings: landslides, shrink-swell clays, soluble rocks, running sands, compressible ground and collapsible deposits. These hazards are evaluated using a series of processes including statistical analyses and expert elicitation techniques to create a derived product that can be used for insurance purposes such as identifying and estimating risk and susceptibility. The evaluated hazards are then linked to a postcode database - the Derived Postcode Database (DPD), which is updated biannually with new releases of Ordnance Survey Code-Point® data (current version used: 2022.1). The newGIP is provided for national coverage across Great Britain (not including the Isle of Man). This product is available in a range of GIS formats including Access (*.dbf), ArcGIS (*.shp) or MapInfo (*.tab) on request. The newGIP is produced for use at 1:50 000 scale providing 50 m ground resolution.

    The borehole is located at the UK Centre for Ecology and Hydrology (UKCEH), screened between 2 and 4.5 m in the Thames gravels, and drilled to a total depth of 4.8m. It is located on an actively managed grass verge with popular and sycamore trees within 10 m. The stilling well is positioned 420 m west of the borehole in the River Thames. Both stage and groundwater level were monitored at 1-minutre frequency to investigate hydrological fractal scaling of high frequency data between 2012 and 2016. An automatic weather station is present between the borehole and stilling well and the data are available separately from UKCEH (stetur@ceh.ac.uk). Further site description is provided in: Habib, A. et al. 2017. Journal of Hydrology, 549, 715-730. Habib, A. et al. 2022. Hydrological Sciences Journal
