The data set contains location (latitude and longitude), ellipsoidal height (m) and observed gravity of benchmarks at the Campi Flegrei caldera, Italy. The gravity and location data were collected between 8 and 12 July, 2015 using a Scintrex CG5 gravimeter (serial number: 572) in tandem with a TOPCON HiPer Pro Dual-Frequency GNSS base and rover system. The survey contained a total of 85 benchmarks in addition to the base station.
The dataset comprises: Petrophysical data for rocks from the region, XRD mineralogical data, Results of the gravity survey of the basin, tabulation and location of all bedding orientation data for the basin, and sediment transport lineation data. The dataset accompanies publication : On the Structure and Evolution of the Sorbas Basin, S.E. Spain, Tectonophysics 773 (2019) 228230, DOI: https://doi.org/10.1016/j.tecto.2019.228230
Report: Brett, CP. 1984. Operations Report on Projects 84/02 and 84/03 Regional Geophysical Surveys in the Southern North Sea, and Project 84/04, a Short Gravity Survey in Norwegian Waters. (IGS Report No 151)
Field notebooks,maps, field sheets etc for Regional gravity observations on the UK mainland, Northern Ireland, offshore islands, tidal estuaries and seabed. Most of the surveys were carried out by the BGS but the database includes data originally acquired by other organisations and subsequently given to the BGS to be managed as part of the national archive. Complete coverage of the UK mainland with a station density of 1-2 stations per square kilometre.
Corrected and smoothed and network adjusted ship gravity, magnetics and bathymetry data acquired by BGS as part of its Offshore Reconnaissance Mapping Programme. This programme was commenced in 1967, funded mainly by the Department of Energy.
The RiftVolc microgravity network was comprised of a total of 4 benchmarks including a reference benchmark. Benchmark locations, observed gravity changes, dg14 -16, from 2014-2016, corresponding vertical deformation, Uz, free-air effect, and resultant residual gravity changes gr of the microgravity and GNSS network at Corbetti.
Report: Dobinson, A. 1975. Survey Data Report South Forties Area July 1974. Continental Shelf Unit II Survey 74/BR/02. MV Briarthorn.(IGS Report No 62, 98, WB/MI/74/12 & 75/3 & UC97). This survey was carried out in conjunction with sampling survey 1974/2.
Report: Deegan, SE. 1976. Cruise Report on Project 76/01. SW Approaches and English Channel. (IGS Report No 83) Navigation: Magnavox integrated satellite navigation/doppler sonar system, back-up control was from the Decca Navigator Mk 12. Equipment: Atlas Deso 10 and Edig 10 echo sounder, Askania GSS-3 gravity meter, Edo Pinger, EG&G 9 candle spark array, Klein Dual Scan Sonar System and BP Sonar System. No information on magnetometer. The first objective was to survey seven proposed borehole sites with sparker and pinger. These sites were to the north-west of Scilly. During leg 2 it became necessary to survey additional sites to the south-west of the Lizard. The second objective was a regional marine geophysical survey of the 1:250000 Scilly sheet, which would include the use of gravity meter, magnetometer, sparker, pinger and sonar.
