Abstract/Summary

Improved 3D visualisation and interpretation of the geology of the Inner Moray Firth in North East Scotland has been achieved as a result of collaborative investigations by a team of BGS land and marine surveyors feeding combined data sets into GSI3D models. A calculated regional fault network, has been generated, incorporating data from the Great Glen-Moray Firth tectonic model, informed by detailed bedrock survey data from the coastal zone. This network has been amalgamated with cross-sections, based upon those generated for the GB3D model and by numerous additional helper sections, to produce a fully calculated model of the onshore and off shore cover sequence of the Inner Moray Firth between Inverness, Helmsdale and Portsoy (c. 8,500 km2).
