This report is the published product of a study by the British Geological Survey (BGS) that describes how the Bellshill (Clyde Catchment) GOCAD™ bedrock model was made. It is for BGS purposes and is a contribution to the Glasgow and Clyde Basin Cross-cutting Super-project. The report covers the data, constraints, geology, modelling process and outputs of the work. It should be used to understand the model in conjunction with the BGS model metadata and relevant sections of the GOCAD™ software operations manual. In addition to adopting best-practice procedures recommended in previous Clyde modelling (Monaghan & Pouliquen, 2009) this study has utilised recent updates to the GOCAD™ software, most notably use of the Cross-section facility in modelling surfaces otherwise poorly constrained by observed data points. Consideration is given to the limitations of the current model, the potential for refinement of the model and for possible improvements to BGS modelling methodology.
