Bath Spa Seismic

The Bath Spa Geothermal Project was commissioned by Bath & NE Somerset council in 1999. As part of the work to gain an enhanced understanding and management of the hot springs that flow into the city, a new seismic survey was designed to investigate the deep geology of the Bath area with special emphasis on the Carboniferous Limestone, the thermal water aquifer.

A total of 6 new 2D seismic lines (20.64 km) were shot in and around the city centre and both the Pre Stack and Processed data sets have been provided for the UKOGL archives.

UKOGL would like to extend our sincere gratitude to Bath & NE Somerset Council for granting permission for this key data set to be made available through the Library.
