This report provides a summary of the logistics of the HiRES airborne geophysical survey conducted in September and October 2008 across the Isle of Wight and part of the Lymington area. The survey was carried out by the Joint Airborne-Geoscience Capability (JAC) established between the Geological Survey of Finland (GTK) and British Geological Survey (BGS). The project is a HiRES survey carried out by the Geophysical Baselines Team under the Environmental Geoscience Baselines Programme. The survey was conducted at high resolution (a flight line spacing of 200 m) and at low altitude (56m) rising to >200 m in the vicinity of conurbations. The three main data sets acquired are magnetic, radiometric (gamma ray spectrometry) and active frequency domain electromagnetic (AEM). The aim of the present report is to provide descriptions of the logistical and in-field processing elements of the survey operations.
