H Burke, S J Mathers, J P Williamson, S Thorpe, J Ford and R L Terrington. 2014. The London Basin superficial and bedrock LithoFrame 50 Model. Nottingham, UK, British geological Survey.

The model is not easy to assess in terms of uncertainty because the borehole data, reference material and geological knowledge that went into the model are difficult to represent. The borehole data used in the model is displayed in Figure 6. However, whilst showing the distribution and density of boreholes, this does not convey the depth of the borehole, the quality of the log itself or the reliability of the borehole coding.
