The boreholes database is an inventory of subsurface data in Catalonia through the collection of available geological and geotechnical survey information. The surveys are classified into three groups: surveys, penetrometers and trial pits.
The Soil Map of Catalonia 1: 250 000 is the result of the synthesis of the edaphological data available at the time of its preparation, in 2018. This process, carried out by the Cartographic and Geological Institute of Catalonia, has consisted of in the compilation, analysis and correlation of the cartographic information obtained in the different soil mapping works that have been executed in Catalonia since the 70's of the last century.
1D/2D geophysical data, obtained through the application of different geophysical methods in different locations in Catalonia, consisting of the measurement of different physical parameters of the subsoil to obtain information on the behavior of its materials and its structure throughout the territory. Specifically, this set of information includes data, profiles and models resulting from the application of the following geophysical techniques: Magnetotelluric (MT); Electrical Tomography (ERT); Vertical electric sounding (SEV); Seismic refraction Survey (SRA); Seismic reflection survey (SRX); Surface wave analysis (MASW); H/V spectral quotient; Passive seismic array (ARRAY); Geophysical testing in wells.
Magnetic anomaly measurements and zoning of the territory according to this at a scale of 1:250,000.
Measurements of gravimetric anomalies and zoning of the territory according to them: the gravimetric anomaly of Bouguer at a scale of 1:250,000 and 1:500,000; the regional gravimetric anomaly at a scale of 1:250,000; and the residual gravimetric anomaly at a scale of 1:250,000.
Geothermal 3D model of the Fossa de l'Empordà, developed as part of the GeoERA HotLime project (Mapping and Assessment of Geothermal Plays in Deep Carbonate Rocks – Cross-domain Implications and Impacts, 2018-2021). More specifically, this model contains the lithological units, the main geological structures, the geothermal model with the 3D temperature and geothermal potential distribution of the GLF aquifer, the location of the exploration drillings and the topographic surface of the scope of the project.
Delimitation of the hidrogeological units of Catalonia (aquifers, aquitards, aquicludes and aquifer systems), i.e. those parts of the lithosphere with distinctive parameters for water storage and conduction. The data model of this geoinformation is based on the technical specifications of geological data of the INSPIRE Directive (2007/2/CE).
3D model of geological surfaces that contains the main stratigraphic surfaces and geological structures of Catalonia, the location of the main exploration drillings and the topographic and bathymetric surface of the model area.
Synthesis of the hydrogeological macrounits into which the territory can be divided, called hydrogeological areas, and classification of the formations of the Geological Map of Catalonia 1:250,000 according to their lithological characteristics, type of porosity and consolidation.
Geothermal 3D model of the Fossa del Camp, developed as part of the Deep Geothermal energy project (GeoEnergia-GP) by the ICGC. More specifically, this model contains the lithological units, the main geological structures, the geothermal model with the 3D temperature and geothermal potential distribution of several mesozoic aquifers in the Fossa del Camp, the location of the exploration drilling Reus-1 and the topographic surface of the scope of the project.
