    The data release includes groundwater chemistry data from 8 samples and 2 tap water samples collected during the borehole construction phase at the UK Geoenergy Observatories (UKGEOS) Glasgow facility. This release from the British Geological Survey (BGS) covers water samples collected between December 2018 and December 2019 and then analysed for the concentrations of selected parameters at BGS and other laboratories. It contains a report and a data sheet. Further details can be found in the accompanying report http://nora.nerc.ac.uk/id/eprint/530443

    The study in three coal mining regions: Lower Silesia, Upper Silesia and Lublin (each N=500) was conducted using Computer Assisted Web Interview (CAWI). The questionnaire includes the block of questions concerning mine water awareness, climate change and local/place attachment. The survey online took 15 to 20 minutes and was prepared after in-depth pilot research among participants with different education level from the mining regions. We used the uninformed approach to the survey, so there were no additional questions nor requirements for participants prior to the survey. Since the mine water energy extraction is a technical issue that is neither well known nor commonly used in the narratives of Poles, we tested survey questions with pilot cognitive interviews to remove the technical language and reduce the number of replies without understanding. The interviews were conducted with 10 participants in July 2020 and due to the pilot's recommendations and results, we implemented additional changes in the final version of the questionnaire. Specifically, some questions were simplified and the background information on mine water extraction was simplified and shortened The survey CAWI was completed by adult people aged 18-65 (N=1500) between 14-19 August 2020 by Kantar Research Agency. The sample was constructed using KANTAR’s internet panel profiled for the basic demographics, such as gender, age, and the town size. Particular attention paid to the quality of the panel is reflected in its structure. Kantar’s internet panel reflects the profile of the Polish population of Internet users in terms of its participants’ demographic characteristics. The sample from each region was 500 respondents and among the full sample (N=1500) we reached only 192 people who chose to call “mining areas” as best description of the area where they live. Although the three voivodships were chosen due to its mining industry the selected sample covers the region in general in which mining communities are statically not fully represented. We also asked about the subjective perception of the area respondents live in, which we further analysed with spatial distribution. The dataset was created within SECURe project (Subsurface Evaluation of CCS and Unconventional Risks) - https://www.securegeoenergy.eu/. This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 764531

    This summary borehole information release is for ‘as-built’ mine water and environmental baseline monitoring boreholes of the UK Geoenergy Observatories (UKGEOS) Glasgow facility at Cuningar Loop. The information pack from BGS contains a brief report with summary tables of locations, drilled depths, screened intervals and illustrative interpretations, and is accompanied with a spreadsheet and shapefile of the borehole locations and drilled depths. The purpose is to give potential users of the Glasgow Observatory an outline of the as-built infrastructure including condition of the target mine workings, as a summary of the more detailed information packs for each borehole. This dataset was updated in June 2020. Further details can be found in the accompanying report http://nora.nerc.ac.uk/id/eprint/526889

    The borehole information pack from borehole GGA02, site 01 of the UK Geoenergy Observatories (UKGEOS) Glasgow facility. This release from the British Geological Survey (BGS) contains BGS and Drillers’ logs, cased hole wireline data, details on fibre-optic cable installation, a listing of archived rock chips and a descriptive report. The borehole was drilled between 17th June and 20th September 2019 (start of drilling to casing installation date) to 94.16 m drilled depth as a mine water characterisation and monitoring borehole. Unfortunately, during the final stages of construction grout entered inside the casing, the casing was damaged and the borehole is now available as a sensor testing borehole to 67.2 m. The cased borehole was wireline logged in January 2020. Rock chip samples were taken during the drilling process and have been archived at the National Geological Repository at BGS Keyworth.

This release from the British Geological Survey (BGS) contains BGS and Drillers’ logs, cased hole and open hole wireline data, a listing of archived rock chips and a descriptive report. The mine water characterisation and monitoring borehole was drilled between 28th June and 22nd October 2019 (start of drilling to casing installation date) to 53.63 m drilled depth. The cased borehole was wireline logged and hydrogeologically tested in January 2020. Rock chip samples were taken during the drilling process and have been archived at the National Geological Repository at BGS Keyworth.

    The data release includes initial interpretation from test pumping of boreholes at the UK Geoenergy Observatories (UKGEOS) Glasgow facility. This release from the British Geological Survey (BGS) covers a programme of test pumping carried out in ten boreholes in January and February 2020. It contains contractors reports and data sheets, BGS data sheets of data logger and manual dip data in the pumped borehole and in the observation boreholes. Step tests and five hour constant rate tests were performed in nine of the boreholes and a slug (falling/rising/head) test was performed in one borehole. Further details can be found in the accompanying report http://nora.nerc.ac.uk/id/eprint/530507
