  • The data set includes meta data from sedimentary samples taken within the exclusive economic zone of Germany that are affected by the Geological Data Act. Also includes information on applied laboratory methods.

  • This dataset has been compiled within the BGR project "D-AERO-Auswertung" based on several survey area located along the German North Sea coast. The BGR helicopter (Sikorsky S-76B) is used for airborne geophysical surveying of the Earth’s subsurface. The standard equipment comprises the methods electromagnetics, magnetics and radiometrics. The passive radiometric (HRD) system is installed into the helicopter and consists of a gamma-ray spectrometer with five Sodiumiodid detectors to measure the gamma radiation. The results are as maps displaying total count, exposure rate as well as (equivalent) concentrations of Potassium, Thorium and Uranium at ground level.

  • INSPIRE theme Environmental Monitoring Facilities. The data of the Marine Environmental Monitoring Network contain information on water temperature, salinity, level and current at different depths, air temperature, wind speed and direction, air pressure, humidity of the North and Baltic Sea at the stations Darßer Schwelle, Ems, Fehmarn Belt, Nordseeboje lll, Nordseeboje ll, Arkona Basin, German Bight, Fino 1, Kiel, Oder Bank.

  • 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. In addition to the chemical element contents, soil properties and soil parameters such as pH, particle size distribution, effective cation exchange capacity (CEC), MIR spectra and magnetic susceptibility were investigated in the samples and some coefficients were calculated. The WMS presents the areal distribution of the determined parameters and coefficients in the shape of colour shaded contour maps.

  • The German Borehole Locations (GBL) contains all disposable borehole data in the Federal Republic of Germany provided by the German Survey Organizations (GSO). The 16 GSO are responsible for data storage, processing and transmission of all borehole related data. In the context of a nationwide cooperation project the header information of borehole data is collected by the BGR via the exchange format BoreholeML to establish a centralized access point. This service permits an easy access to the accumulated borehole data from the participating federal states. The first two aggregated layer show the drilling density distribution in a defined raster, while the single locations only appear in greater scales. The header data is queriable from each location. The web application Borehole Map Germany makes use of this service as one major source https://boreholemap.bgr.de/

  • The map “Groundwater resources in the ECOWAS region” captures and standardises existing groundwater data of West Africa and gives a consistent regional overview on the groundwater resources. It provides a quantitative assessment of aquifer productivity using a combination of aquifer flow type and expected borehole yield. The map highlights the suitability of aquifers for water supply on different scales while at the same time showing the physical limits of groundwater development. Map elaboration comprised the harmonisation of existing continental and regional geological maps and the attribution of hydrogeological units with expected yield data compiled from a literature metasurvey. Insert maps highlight the geological structure, geogenic background levels of arsenic and fluoride, and groundwater recharge.

  • The lithofacies model of the Buntsandstein shows the spatial and temporal distribution of the lithologies within the Buntsandstein sequences in the central part of the German North Sea. The data basis of the model is formed by depth-migrated, seismic reinterpretations of the most important basement areas, 22 drilling datasets and the GSN (Generalised Extended Structural Model of the German North Sea Sector). The salt structures of the German North Sea and 30 faults essential for the structural setup of the model region were integrated into the model in a generalised way. The creation of the model and the preceding data preparation were carried out with the help of several specialised programmes (Schlumberger Petrel, Paradigm GOCAD and Fugro GeoDIn). The horizontal resolution of the model is 1000 x 1000 metres with a total number of 2042977 cells.

  • This WMS presents the following data: "Delta Evolution German North Sea - Depth of Late Cenozoic Sediments"; "Delta Evolution German North Sea - Thickness of Late Cenozoic Sediments" - Description of the data see there.

  • Potential maps at a scale of 1:500,000 are available for the area of the central German North Sea sector, which show the distribution of potential storage and barrier complexes and their worthiness for investigation according to the criteria of the Storage Cadastre Germany (Müller & Reinhold, 2011).
