A comprehensive catalogue of underground temperature, heat flow and geochemical data was first published by the Department of Energy in 1978 (Burley and Edmunds) It was compiled under the terms of contracts drawn between the Commission of the European Communities, the Department of Energy and the Natural Environment Research Council in association with its component body the Institute of Geological Sciences. This First Revision of the earlier catalogue was prepared under an extension of the same contractual arrangements. It incorporates new data acquired since the first catalogue was completed in June 1977, and it also includes the data published in the first catalogue. Revisions of the original maps, however, are not included and readers will themselves need to add the locations of new data to those maps. Reference should be made to the original publication for an account of how the tables are compiled but an explanation of the various columns of data is given at the beginning of each table. A further revision is planned in 1984 when it is intended to publish a fully revised version of the catalogue.
