  • GEMAS (Geochemical Mapping of Agricultural and Grazing Land Soil in Europe) is a cooperative project between the Geochemistry Expert Group of EuroGeoSurveys and Eurometeaux. In total, more than 60 international organisations and institutions worldwide were involved in the implementation of the project. During 2008 and 2009, a total of 2219 samples of agricultural (arable land soils, 0 – 20 cm, Ap samples) and 2127 samples of grazing land (pasture land soils, 0 – 10 cm, Gr samples) soil were collected at a density of 1 site/2 500 km² each from 33 European countries, covering an area of 5,600,000 km². All samples were analysed for 52 chemical elements after an aqua regia extraction, 41 by XRF (total), TC and TOC. In addition, the agricultural soil samples were analysed for 57 elements in a mobile metal ion (MMI®) extraction and Pb isotopes. All analytical results were subject to tight external quality control procedures. The GEMAS project thus provides for the first time fully harmonised data for element concentrations and bioavailability of the elements at the continental (European) scale. The downloadable files present the areal distribution of the element contents determined by different analytical methods in the shape of colour shaded contour maps with a classification in 7 and 72 levels each.

  • BGR conducted an airborne survey in the region of Finsterwalde (Brandeburg) as part of the BGR project D-AERO-Finsterwalde. This project is a pilot study to survey the "Finsterwalder Restlochkette" with the BGR airborne geophysical standard measuring system. The former lignite mining area is located between Finsterwalde and Lauchhammer in Lower Lusatia about 50 km southwest of Cottbus. The size of the area is about 260 km². The area was surveyed with 10 flights totalling to 1741 line-km (40,153 survey points). The nominal separation of the 117 NW-SE lines and 59 NE-SW tie lines was 250 m and 625 m, respectively. The ASCII datafile contains the raw data as well as the processed HRD data.

  • The International Geological Map of Europe and the Mediteranean Regions 1 : 1 500 000 ("Carte Géologique Internationale de l'Europe et des Régions Méditerranéennes 1 : 1 500 000") shows the geology of the European continent from the Ural mountains in the east up to Island in the west and the whole mediteranean region in the south. The geology is differenciated in stratigraphy, igneous and metamorphic rocks. In addition there are two legend sheets and a title sheet. The language of the series is French.

  • The point map (WMS) shows samples of the BGR-petroleum archive, which are stored at the Federal Institute for Geosciences and Natural Resources (BGR). The map contains drill sites and selected information on the well including well names and NIBIS-well identifiers (NIBIS Kartenserver des Landesamtes für Bergbau und Geologie Niedersachsens). Petroleum samples are stored in different quantities and are usually stored cool. For many of the samples geochemical data are available at BGR like relative amounts of aliphatic and aromatic hydrocarbons, isotopic compositions of individual fractions (delta13C) as well as ratios of selected aliphatic hydrocarbons and biomarkers (particularly steranes and hopanes). Samples and data are stored for internal use only due to legal issues. BGR may help with making a contact.

  • BGR conducted within the project „Airborne geophysical surveys for mapping the shallow subsurface in Germany “ (D-AERO) airborne surveys at the German North Sea coast. The survey area Langeoog2 (2014) covers the central and eatern portion of the island of Langgeoog. The size of the area is about 10 km². The area was surveyed with 1 flight totalling to 40 line-km (12,375 survey points). The nominal separation of the 5 E-W tie lines was 250 m. The map displays the anomalies of the magnetic field of the earth.

  • Which salt formations are suitable for storing hydrogen or compressed air? In the InSpEE-DS research project, scientists developed requirements and criteria for the assessment of suitable sites even if their exploration is still at an early stage and there is little knowledge of the salinaries’ structures. Scientists at DEEP.KBB GmbH in Hanover, worked together with their project partners at the Federal Institute for Geosciences and Natural Resources and the Leibniz University Hanover, Institute for Geotechnics Hanover, to develop the planning basis for the site selection and for the construction of storage caverns in flat layered salt and multiple or double saliniferous formations. Such caverns could store renewable energy in the form of hydrogen or compressed air. While the previous project InSpEE was limited to salt formations of great thickness in Northern Germany, salt horizons of different ages have now been examined all over Germany. To estimate the potential, depth contour maps of the top and the base as well as thickness maps of the respective stratigraphic units and reference profiles were developed. Information on compressed air and hydrogen storage potential were given for the identified areas and for the individual federal states. The web service "Information system for flat layered salt" gives access to this data. The scale of display is limited to a minimum of 1:300.000. This geographic information is product of a BMWi-funded research project "InSpEE-DS" running from the year 2015 to 2019. The acronym stands for "Information system salt: planning basis, selection criteria and estimation of the potential for the construction of salt caverns for the storage of renewable energies (hydrogen and compressed air) - double saline and flat salt layers".
