Shelley, C, and Burke, H. 2018. Model metadata report for the South Downs teaching model. British Geological Survey Open Report, OR/18/003.

No attempt has been made to establish uncertainty up to the point of the model and metadata report being published. However, as a general rule with cross-section based models, uncertainty increases with distance away from boreholes used in the cross-sections. The drilled depth of the boreholes also affects uncertainty, with the deepest boreholes providing the most detail on the deepest modelled units.
