Tellus South West project is a collaborative, environmental survey and research project funded by the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) and carried out by a partnership of the British Geological Survey (BGS), the Centre for Ecology and Hydrology (CEH), the British Antarctic Survey (BAS) and the University of Exeter Camborne School of Mines. The multidisciplinary data collected will be managed by the NERC data centres at BGS and CEH.

The following data for the south-west region will be delivered:

The data can be viewed and accessed through our Tellus South West map viewer.

Links to downloadable data are also available on the home page for each dataset; see below.

How much will the data cost?

Data are made available under the terms of the NERC Data Policy. The basic principle of this policy is that all environmental data held by the NERC data centres will be made freely available without any restrictions on use. The only exceptions are for a limited number of datasets where third party rights require NERC to restrict access or to levy charges, or for large or complex ad hoc requests, where NERC may charge to cover the cost of supplying the data.

Data availability and terms of use

Links to data and advice on the accessibility and terms of use of each dataset are provided on the home pages for each dataset, below. Further links to other datasets will be added when data becomes available.

Data survey

We would really welcome your feedback about the Tellus SW data. The BGS endeavours to be a leading resource provider and collaborator in geoscience, as well as being competitive and cutting edge in data delivery. Demonstrating the impact of our projects and their data will enable us to plan future projects and design more accessible and relevant outputs. We also want to make the data progressive, easy to use and as accessible as possible and most importantly make sure it meets the needs of our stakeholders at the point of delivery.
