  • BGR conducted within the EU Interreg-IIIb project "Ancient groundwater reservoirs in buried valleys" (BurVal) an airborne survey in the region of the Ellerbeker Rinne in cooperation with the State Geological Surveys of Schleswig-Holstein (LANU) and Hamburg (BSU). The survey area Ellerbeker Rinne (2005/06) is located to the northwest of the Hanseatic City of Hamburg and is about bounded by the motorway A23 to the west and by Bad Bramstedt to the northeast. The size of the area is about 280 km². The area was surveyed with 7 flights totalling to 899 line-km (23,628 survey points). The nominal separation of the 99 ENE-WSW lines and 6 NNW-SSE tie lines was 400/600 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.

  • A concept to derive spatially representative heavy metal and trace element background values in topsoils, subsoils, and deeper soil horizons was developed and applied. The concept is based on a differentiation of background values according to soil parent material groups at the first level. Spatial information is given by a small-scale (1:1,000,000) digital map of soil parent material groups and additional information on soil types. For top soils the background values are also differentiated according to land use. To derive representative background values site-specific soil data have been compiled from different sources (soil data from federal institutions and institutions of the federal states) regarding aspects of data harmonization and minimum soil information requirements. Based on information of about 5000 soil profiles representative background values for top soils, sub-soils and deeper soil horizons can be derived for the dominating groups of soil parent material in Germany with a current spatial coverage of about 90%. More information about the method is given in the LABO-report (2003): 'Hintergrundwerte für anorganische und organische Stoffe in Böden, 3. überarbeitete und ergänzte Auflage'.

  • 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 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 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 of the soil depth gives an overview of the rooting capacity of German soils. The soil depth is derived from profile data of the landuse stratified soil map of Germany at scale 1:1,000,000. The lower limit of a soil is bedrock or a groundwater influenced horizon. The method is derived from Bodenkundliche Kartieranleitung KA5 (2005) and is documented in the MethodenWIKI of the FISBo BGR. The land use information is derived from the CORINE Land Cover data set (2006).

  • The International Hydrogeological Map of Europe, scale 1:1,500,000 is a series of general hydrogeological maps comprising 25 map sheets with explanatory notes, covering the whole European continent and parts of the Near East. The national contributions to this map series were compiled by hydrogeologists and experts in related sciences of the countries concerned under the auspices of the International Association of Hydrogeologists (IAH) and its Commission on Hydrogeological Maps (COHYM). The project is supported by the Commission for the Geological Map of the World (CGMW).The scientific editorial work is supported financially by the Government of the Federal Republic of Germany through the Bundesanstalt für Geowissenschaften und Rohstoffe (BGR) and by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO). These organizations are responsible for the cartography, printing and publication of the map sheets and explanatory notes.The series of hydrogeological maps seeks to represent the hydrogeological setting of Europe as a whole without regard to political boundaries. Together with the information presented in the accompanying explanatory notes, the map can be used for scientific purposes, for large-scale regional planning and as a basis for detailed hydrogeological mapping.
