Tellus Airborne Geophysics Report: Data processing Tellus Border(2011-2013)
Hodgson, J.A. and Ture, M. D. (2013) Tellus Border Project Airborne Geophysics Data Processing Report Version 2.
This report describes the processing of airborne geophysical data of the six northern counties of
the Republic of Ireland (Tellus Border) and subsequent merging of this data with existing airborne
geophysics data for Northern Ireland (Tellus) and a previous pilot survey (Cavan). The Tellus
Border project is funded by the INTERREG IVA programme of the European Regional Development
The contract for the survey was commissioned by the Central Procurement Directorate on behalf
of Geological Survey of Northern Ireland (GSNI), the Lead Partner. The contract is being managed
by GSNI with the assistance of the Geological Survey of Ireland (GSI).
The full merged data set of the 12 northern counties of the island of Ireland include data from:
- Tellus Border carried out by Sander Geophysics Ltd between 2011 and 2012. An industry survey was completed for Oriel Selection Trust Ltd at the same time as Tellus Border in the Charlestown Block in Co. Mayo. The Charlestown survey data is subject to data release agreement (1st April 2013).
- Tellus survey of Northern Ireland carried out by Joint Airborne‐geoscience Capability (JAC) joint venture between the Geological Survey of Finland and the British Geological Survey between 2005 and 2006.
- Cavan pilot study carried out by JAC in 2006.
