A comprehensive catalogue of undergound temperature, heat flow and geochemical data was first prepared in 1977 by the Institute of Geological Sciences (now renamed the British Geological Survey) and published by the Department of Energy in 1978. It was compiled under terms of contracts between the Commission of the European Communities (CEC), the Department of Energy (DEn), and the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) in aSSOCiation w1th its component body the British Geological Survey (BGS). A first revision of the earlier catalogue was published by IGS in 1982 incorporating new data acquired between June 1977 and August 1981 and including the data published in the first catalogue. 'lhat revision comprised listings of the underground temperature, heat flow ana geochemical" data but not the maps or detailed notes incorporated in the original catalogue. This second revision of the catalogue incorporates new data acquired between August 1981 and April 1984 and includes data published in the previous catalogues. This catalogue has also been prepared under contracts between the DEn, the CEC and the NERC in association with the BGS. The text of this catalogue has been written by A J Burley, W M Edmunds and I N Gale. Canpilation and editing of the data on computer files from which this catalogue has been produced has largely been carried out by S J Whitting using programs written by M T Houghton (Tables I and II) and R Andrews and D G Kinniburgh {Table III>. 'nle work has been supervised by R A Downing under the general direction of D A Gray.
