  • 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 Baltrum (2014) covers the central and eatern portion of the island of Baltrum. The size of the area is about 4 km². The area was surveyed with 1 flight totalling to 17 line-km (456 survey points). The nominal separation of the 5 E-W lines was 250 m. The maps display the total count, the (equivalent) content of potassium, uranium and thorium as well as the exposure rate at ground.

  • 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 of the annual rate of capillary rise from the groundwater zone into the effective rooting zone of the soils in Germany gives an overview of the amount of groundwater that passes through evapotranspiration to the surface.

  • 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.

  • Zambia faces an increasing demand of industrial- and drinking water. In the field Zambia faces an increasing demand of industrial- and drinking water. In the fields of water supply and management, the Zambian government cooperates with BGR as one of the implementing agencies of the German Development Cooperation and other partners. The project "Groundwater Resources for Southern Province" aims at solutions for the southern parts of the country in which surface water is scarce and only temporarily available. Accurate and updated information about quality and quantity on both surface and groundwater resources is required to regulate its use and to establish an integrated and sustainable management of the Nation’s water resources. One result of data research is reflected in the GIS-based Hydrogeological Map "Northern Kariba Lake and Kafue Gorge", scale 1:250,000. The contents of the maps comprise: - Topography including administrative boundaries, transport, villages, towns, health centres and schools, surface elevation - Hydrography including rivers and wetlands - Surface catchment and subcatchment boundaries - Aquifers - Groundwater elevation contours and direction of groundwater flow - Water points such as boreholes and wells and thermal springs - Lithology and geological structures (faults, etc.) - Rainfall Distribution (Insert Map) - Sheet map of available hydrogeological map sheets of Southern Province, Zambia (scale 1:250,000) Additional Information: For Southern Province 2 adjacent or overlapping hydrogeological maps at scale 1:250.000 and one map at scale 1:100,000 (digital and printed version) are available. The printed version is only available as whole package (4 maps and 2 booklets).
