Abstract/Summary

The Clyde Basin comprises the River Clyde catchment, west coast of Scotland, UK including the Glasgow conurbation, a major industrial centre in the past. Over recent years, the British Geological Survey has carried out regional-scale topsoil (5 – 20 cm) and surface water geochemical surveys across the Clyde Basin. The samples were analysed for total concentrations of approximately 50 parameters. The results show the influence of geology, land use, current and former mining activity, industry and urbanisation on the chemical quality of soil and surface water in the region.
