Marchant, Andrew. Rock Stress GIS. October 2013, [Output (Electronic)]

Full text not available from this repository.


In October 2013 the BGS released a new dynamic spatial geoprocessing application creating rose diagrams of rock stress from borehole records. Rock stress data are derived from borehole breakout measurements within boreholes and describe the local stress field. BGS data covers the entire onshore and offshore UK, with 350 borehole records of rock stress. Data also shows rose diagram and ‘raw’ stress magnitude and direction data for vector display. Users can also build their own rose diagrams in the BGS Rock Stress application.(
