Project Title: Using Tellus electromagnetic and geochemical datasets to improve soil mapping in Ireland
Project Description: The aim of this work is to classify Irish soil types based on their geochemical and geophysical characteristics. Working with GSI staff, our research will directly compare output from the airborne geophysical and ground geochemical components of the recent Tellus Border and Tellus North Midlands surveys with published geological information.
