Text (Final abstract)
Glasgow is Scotland’s largest city and was a major centre of heavy engineering and industrialisation until the mid 20th century. Much of this industry has now declined leaving tracts of derelict/brownfield land, which are gradually being regenerated. As an aid to sustainable planning and development the British Geological Survey has carried out a soil geochemical survey of the Glasgow urban and surrounding rural areas as part of its Geochemical Baseline Survey of the Environment (G-BASE) and geoenvironmental Clyde and Glasgow Urban Super Project (CUSP).
