  • The idea to represent the main features of the European Quaternary was first discussed at the Second Congress of the International Union for Quaternary Research (INQUA) held in Leningrad (St. Petersburg) in 1932. Compiled by the Federal Institute for Geosciences and Natural Resources (BGR) in cooperation with the INQUA, the International Quaternary Map of Europe 1 : 2.500.000 was finished in 1995. It is jointly published by the BGR and UNESCO. Several Quaternary features such as end moraines, ground moraine hillocks, kames, drumlins, eskers and ice border lines are represented on the map. Additionally, the map shows the directions of ice movements, limits of marine transgressions and tectonic faults. Important localities of Quaternary discovery relating to both geology and prehistory, bathymetric lines and recent deposits covering the sea floor are also indicated as well. The legend on each of the 14 map sheets is in German and, depending on the territories covered, in English, French or Russian. The general legend is placed on map sheet number 15.

  • The map series General Geological Map of the Federal Republic of Germany 1:200,000 (GÜK200) is the result of cooperation between the State Geological Surveys of the Federal Republic of Germany (SGD), the Geological Surveys of neighbouring countries and the Federal Institute for Geosciences and Natural Resources (BGR). The GÜK200 displays the surface geology of Germany and adjacent areas of neighbouring countries on 55 map sheets. The map sheets show the regional dissemination of more than 3800 geological units. The geological units contain information on stratigraphy (age), genesis and petrography (composition) of the rocks.

  • The map of the plant available water in Germany gives an overview of the amount of water which is available for plant growth in the summer period (April – September). It is the sum of the available water holding capacity of soils the precipitation in summer and the amount of capillary rise. The map was made on the basis of the land use stratified soil map of Germany at a scale of 1:1,1000,000, climate data for the period of 1961–1990 and land use information is derived from the Corine Land Cover data set (2006). The method is part of the TUB_BGR approach to model seepage water and is published in the documentation of Ad-hoc-AG Boden (representing the soil experts of the geological services of the German federal states).

  • Die BGR führte im Projekt „Deutschlandweite Aerogeophysik-Befliegung zur Kartierung des nahen Untergrundes und seiner Oberfläche“ (D-AERO) flächenhafte Befliegungen an der deutschen Nordseeküste durch. Das Messgebiet Jever (2010/14) wird im Norden und Nordosten durch die Küste, im Osten durch die Stadt Wilhelmshaven und die A27, im Süden durch die Ortschaft Friedeburg sowie im Westen durch die Ortschaft Werdum begrenzt. Die Gebietsgröße beträgt etwa 490 km² und 13 Messflüge mit einer Gesamtprofillänge von 2139 km (56.666 Messpunkte) wurden zur Abdeckung des gesamten Messgebiets benötigt. Der Sollabstand der 90 N-S-Messprofile beträgt 250 m, der Sollabstand der 13 O-W-Kontrollprofile beträgt 2000 m. Die Karten stellen die Gesamtstrahlung, die (Äquivalent-)Gehalte von Kalium, Uran und Thorium sowie die Ionendosisleistung am Boden dar.

  • The „TUNB 3D-model of the North German Basin“ provides information of the spatial distribution of base horizons, salt structures and faults in the North German Basin. (On- and Offshore). The model consists of 13 stratigraphic base horizons of late Paleozoic to Cenozoic formations. The base of the Late Permian „Zechstein“ forms the base of the model and the base of the Cenozoic „Rupelium“ is the youngest modeled horizon. The digital elevation model (or sea bottom offshore) acts as the top of the model. 273 salt structures were modelled using seismic data, well data and in some cases the depth maps of surrounding horizons. Within the model these salt structures are represented by a generalized modelled boundary between salt and surrounding sediment. Due to the large number of faults in the area only selected faults could be incorporated into the model. Faults that are longer than 5 km and offset at least 3 horizons are modelled. Also selected important faults are included into the model even if they don´t match these criteria. The 3D model is the outcome of a joint project coordinated by BGR. The modelling was conducted between 2014 and 2020 by the State Geologic Survey Organisation (GSO) of Schleswig-Holstein, Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, Brandenburg, Sachsen-Anhalt and Niedersachen. Each GSO was responsible for his territory and the BGR was responsible for modelling the area of the Exclusive Economic Zone of the German North Sea. The software package GOCAD/SKUA by Emerson Paradigm was used to create the model. In this software format the model can also be downloaded.

  • 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 Langeoog (2008/09) comprises the island of Langeoog, the western portion of the island of Spiekeroog, the Wadden Sea to the south of the islands as well as an onshore stripe ranging from about Dornum in the west to Werdum in the east. The size of the area is about 259 km². The area was surveyed with 12 flights totalling to 946 line-km (27,882 survey points). The nominal separation of the 68 N-S lines and 7 W-E tie lines was 250 m and 2000 m, respectively. The maps display the total count, the (equivalent) content of potassium, uranium and thorium as well as the exposure rate at ground.

  • 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 of the East-Frisian island of Borkum (2008) is bounded by the Westerems close to the Dutch-German border to the southwest, by the Osterems to the northeast, and by the mouth of the river Ems to the south. The size of the area is about 88 km². The area was surveyed with 4 flights totalling to 396 line-km (106,980 survey points). The nominal separation of the 36 NW-SE lines and 11 NE-SW tie lines was 250 m and 500 m, respectively. The map displays the anomalies of the magnetic field of the earth.
