    This sampling survey has been carried out by Institute of Geological Sciences now British Geological Survey (BGS) and George Wimpey and Co Ltd for BGS, the survey took place from June to September 1969 in the Sea of Hebrides, Clyde, Irish Sea, North Channel and Tay-Forth areas on board the MV Maria W. The purpose was to collect data as part of UK regional mapping programme. Sample data were collected using dredge; gravity corer; rock drill; vibrocorer; beach sampling; diver; photograph and Shipek grab. Most of these data are archived by BGS. Reference to part of the survey contained in IGS report 73/14.

    This British Geological Survey (BGS) regional marine geophysical and sampling survey (comprised of two legs) took place from September to October 1976 in North Sea and the Minch on board the RRS Challenger. The purpose was to gather data which could be used to map the regional geology of the area and investigate Pockmarks between the Forties and Piper oilfields (Leg 1), to recover solid rock from outcrops on the west coast of Scotland using Consub (Leg 2). Seabed samples and cores were collected using Shipek grab, Gravity corer and unmanned submersible Consub. Sea floor data were collected using a echo-sounder, side-scan sonar, acoustic and resistivity probes. These data are archived by BGS. Technical details of the survey are contained in BGS Internal Report 76/8.

    This high resolution marine multi-channel seismic survey commissioned by the Institute of Geological Sciences on behalf of Department of Energy took place in the Northern North Sea during 1st-27th November 1979 (Phase 1) aboard MV Aqua Star and 1st-14th February 1980 (Phase2) aboard Gardline Tracker. Phase 1 (Lines 1-5) was carried out by Fairfield Auatronics Ltd and Phase 2 (lines 5B-9) by Gardline surveys Ltd. Line coverage total 445km (Phase1 - 180km; Phase 2 - 265km). Sea floor data were collected using Echo sounder. Subsurface seismic data were gathered using a 9/15KJ sparker and line 4, Fairflex sleeve exploder. Survey details are contained in Fairfield and gardline acquisition reports and BGS technical report WB/MG/81/124.

    This British Geological Survey (BGS) marine geophysical survey took place in December 1969 in the Firth of Clyde on board the MV Stella Maris. The purpose was to investigate the superficial deposits of the clyde area, this survey was Phase 4 of a 5 phase project. Sea floor data were collected using echosounder. Sub-bottom seismic profiling data were collected using Pinger and Sparker. These records are archived by BGS. Details of the survey are contained in IGS report 73/9.

    This marine geophysical survey took place from 05/07/92 – 06/07/92 in the area of the Barra Fan on board the RV Kommandor Michael. The survey was carried out by the British Geological Survey (BGS), Marine Biological Association and Dunstaffnage Marine Laboratory. The aim of the survey was to investigate the source and fate of methane in marine sediments. Sub bottom seismic profiling data were collected using a Deep Tow Boomer. These data are archived by BGS. Technical details are contained in BGS Report WB/92/27. Report: Dobinson, A. 1992. Barra Fan Project: Geophysical Operations Report - Project 92/02, https://nora.nerc.ac.uk/id/eprint/529922/.

    This geophysical survey has been carried out by British Geological Survey (BGS) for BGS, the survey took place in July 1989 off the coast of East Anglia on board the MV Shorething. The purpose was to collect data as part of the UK mapping programme for 1:50k special sheets. Sea floor data were collected using echosounder. Sub-bottom profiling data were collected using surface tow boomer and sidescan sonar. These data are archived by BGS. No BGS survey report currently available.

    This British Geological Survey (BGS) marine geophysical and multibeam survey took place in January 2007 in the white ribbon area of the Montrose Basin on board the Kommander Iona. The purpose was to obtain the data necessary to produce a swathe bathymetry map of the inshore area, in a bid to link the nearshore and offshore geology. Sea floor bathymetry data were collected using a Reson Seabat 8101 multibeam system run by Utec Survey. Sub bottom seismic profiling data were gathered by BGS using a surface tow boomer. Most of the data were recorded digitally, but paper records were generated also. These data are archived by BGS. Technical details of the survey are contained in BGS Internal Report IR/07/025.

    This British Geological Survey (BGS) marine geophysical survey took place in March 2009 in the Medway & Swale Estuaries on board the Medway Surveyor. The purpose was to obtain the data necessary for the Coastal Evolution of the Medway & Swale estuary targeting the Holocene thickness and distribution of sediments within the Paleo Valley. Sea floor data were collected using a ODOM Echotrac III run by Peel Ports. Sub bottom seismic profiling data were gathered by BGS using a surface tow boomer. Most of the data were recorded digitally, but paper records were generated also. These data are archived by BGS. Technical details of the survey are contained in BGS Internal Report OR/09/014.
