This report describes the environmental baseline topsoil chemistry dataset collected in February-March 2018 (03-18) as part of the United Kingdom Geoenergy Observatories (UKGEOS) project. Ninety, samples were collected from the shallow coal-mine Glasgow Geothermal Energy Research Field Site (GGERFS). The report accompanies the GGERFS Soil Chemistry03-18 dataset. It provides valuable information on soil chemistry prior to installation of the GGERFS-facility boreholes, against which any future change during the development/ running of the facility can be assessed. This information is necessary to help understand and de-risk similar shallow geothermal schemes in the future, provide public reassurance, and inform sustainable energy policy.
