Abstract/Summary

The overall permeability of each geological unit has been interpreted to produce an index of the vulnerability of groundwater occurring in Glasgow, and provides a broad-based view of both the vulnerability of groundwater and the location of the more permeable aquifers in Glasgow. The data used to interpret the groundwater vulnerability index are derived from the 1:50 000 DigMap bedrock and superficial geology coverage. The GIS and associated maps should not therefore be used at scales larger than 1:50 000. Locations of thick clays have been interpreted and drawn based on BGS borehole records. Information on water boreholes is derived from the British Geological Survey Scottish Water Borehole database.
