Deposited data search

Detailed accession search screen grab

This search allows you to discover data that has been ingested by the National Geoscience Data Centre (NGDC) and the National Geological Repository (NGR) at the Keyworth office from July 2014 to date and all Scottish data held at the Edinburgh office. Much of the Scottish data has now been relocated due to the move to Heriot-Watt University.

This database includes data deposited under statute, voluntary donations, NERC funded grants and UKCCS projects.

You can search using keywords or via a geographical interface. Items that are held digitally can be opened and viewed directly from the results screen. Physical items will be available on request through our enquiry service. Please note some data may be held with restricted access; in these cases a justification will be supplied and a contact will be given if you wish to gain further clarity.
