This report describes the creation of a 3D geological model developed by the British Geological Survey (BGS) for the UK Geoenergy Observatories (UKGEOS) Glasgow Observatory. The model represents the bedrock geology, fault network, and underground mine workings. The model covers an area of 5 by 4 km with a grid resolution of 50 m and smooths out some of the metre scale variability cause by facies variation and faulting. The 3D geological model described here uses subsurface data that was collected during the construction of the Observatory, as well as legacy data, and represents our ‘post-drill’ understanding of the bedrock and mine geometry. A post-drill superficial deposits model is also available.
