  • In 2003 BGR purchased the well Horstberg Z1 together with a 3D seismic cube from BEB Erdgas und Erdöl GmbH. This former exploration well provides the worldwide unique opportunity to explore the geothermal usage of not, or only slightly, permeable sandstones. For further modelling tasks a digital 3D model of the quite complex structure was created. The model is based upon a highly detailed seismic interpretation of the 3D cube and was enlarged using parts of the Geotektonischer Atlas 3D (Bombien et al. 2012).

  • The Land use-stratified soil map of Germany 1:1,000,000 (BUEK1000N), Version 2.31, was subdivided according to the main land cover types (forest, cropland and grassland) using the 1990 CORINE Land Cover data. However, it cannot be expected that the legend of this soil map is valid for the CORINE areas (in this project processed as vector data with the resolution of ca. 0,25 km2) rather than for larger patches (ca. 4 km2). Thus, the land cover data had to be generalized. The original land-cover classes were first aggregated into 14 combined classes, then generalized to at least 4 km2 patches, and finally intersected with the soil map units. The unchanged original soil map units were thus geometrically subdivided by land cover. Soil regions, soil landscapes and European climatic zones were also considered in order to stratify the legend of this new digital database. In another working step, the descriptions of the soil legend units were re-written in order to distinguish and to describe typical soil types and soil profiles under forest, cropland and grassland. For that, data from the BGR soil profile data base and from higher resolution soil maps as well as soil profiles from the national forest soil condition monitoring were evaluated. The results are stored in a relational database which is part of the BGR soil information system “FISBo BGR”. An additional, 54-page booklet with explanations for BUEK1000N can be purchased at the GeoCenter Touristik Medien Service GmbH in D-70565 Stuttgart.

  • 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 BUEK3000 is prepared by the Federal Institute for Geosciences and Natural Resources (BGR) for the National Atlas of Germany. Based on the generalized and aggregated soil map 1:2,000,000, it shows 43 mapping units with information about soil texture, parent material, dominant and associated soils.

  • 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'.

  • 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 Varel (2014) is bounded by the Cities of Wilhelmshaven and Brake to the north and east, by Jaderberg, Mittelort and Sande to the south and west. The size of the area is about 319 km². The area was surveyed with 8 flights totalling to 1245 line-km (322,471 survey points). The nominal separation of the 63 WNW-ESE lines and 8 SSE-NNW tie lines was 250 m and 2000 m, respectively. The maps display the geophysical parameters apparent resistivity and centroid depth derived from the HEM data at the six frequencies of the HEM system (0.4 - 130 kHz). Furthermore, horizontal and vertical slices were derived from layered-earth models (resistivities and thicknesses of six model layers).

  • The map of the relative binding strength of isoproturon in topsoils (0-30 cm) gives an overview of the sorption of this pesticide in the soils of Germany. A high binding strength of isoproturon can reduce the harmful impact on the environment by a decreased mobility. The decomposition of isoproturon in soils was not taken into account during generation of the map. The basis for calculation of the binding strength was the soil map 1:1,000,000 (BUEK1000) as well as linking rules and tabular values of isoproturon binding from Mueller & Waldeck (2011) and Rexilius & Blume (2004). However, the rank of isoproturon binding by clay was recalculated based 175 datasets of 18 publications (shift from rank 5 to rank 1). The binding strength of isoproturon depends on the content of organic matter and the soil texture (proxy for the content of clay minerals and sesquioxides) in this evaluation.
