The Superficial Deposits Thickness Model (SDTM) is a raster-based dataset designed to demonstrate the variation in thickness of Quaternary-age superficial deposits across Great Britain. Quaternary deposits (all unconsolidated material deposited in the last 2.6 million years) are of particular importance to environmental scientists and consultants concerned with our landscape, environment and habitats. The BGS has been generating national models of the thickness of Quaternary-age deposits since 2001, and this latest version of the model is based upon DiGMapGB-50 Version 5 geological mapping and borehole records registered with BGS before August 2008.
