Tellus undertakes research with a range of collaborators in order to maximise the societal and economic benefits of the geochemical and geophysical data. Explore the themes below to see how Tellus data is being used to benefit society.
Tellus is supporting mineral exploration in Ireland by providing world-class geochemical and geophysical data on a regional level. 2016’s Fraser Report on worldwide mineral exploration ranked Ireland ninth in the world for the quality of its geological databases and second in Europe for overall investment attractiveness.
Research shows how the geochemical and geophysical data can be used to support exploration for a variety of minerals.
Tellus provides a wide range of geochemical data relevant to the assessment of micro-nutrients and chemical status in agricultural soil on a regional level.
Radon is a naturally occurring radioactive gas that originates from the decay of uranium in rocks and soils. The Tellus airborne survey measures naturally occurring uranium emitted from the rocks and soils. Therefore, the information gathered can be used to map radon distribution.
