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.
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.
Magnetic anomaly measurements and zoning of the territory according to this at a scale of 1:250,000.
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.
Physical properties and composition of geologic materials (rocks and sediments), their structure and their age as depicted in the Geological map 1:250,000, as well as geomorphological features, boreholes and hydrogeological units of Catalonia. This data set is conforming to the technical specifications of INSPIRE Geology (and Hydrogeology).
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.
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.
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 aquifers in the urban and peri-urban areas of Girona and surrounding municipalities, developed within the framework of the MUSE project (Management Urban Shallow geothermal Energy, 2018-2021). More specifically, this model contains the lithological-hydrogeological units, the main geological structures and the topographic and piezometric surfaces of the project area.
WMS service for visualization of the columns of boreholes, trial pits and penetrometers available in Catalonia.
