UK Geoenergy Observatories Glasgow: GGC01 cored, seismic monitoring borehole — intermediate data release. British Geological Survey Internal Report, OR/19/049.

This report gives a short overview of information related to the intermediate data release for UK Geoenergy Observatories; Glasgow borehole GGC01, as well as information included in the initial data release. The cored, seismic monitoring borehole GGC01 (BGS SOBI number NS66SW BJ 3754, BGS ID 20650619, British National Grid reference 260915, 663109) was drilled between 19 November and 12 December 2018 producing a core of 102 mm diameter. The borehole was wireline logged in December 2018 and a string of 5 seismometers were installed in February 2019. A range of fluid, water and core samples were taken during the drilling process.

This intermediate data release includes optical images and radiographic images from core scanners at BGS Keyworth, as well as sedimentary, discontinuity and engineering logs (Figure 1).
