National Geological Screening for a GDF - Wales

Regional information from our screening work, and its relevance to the siting of a GDF


To present the conclusions of our work in a concise and accessible way, we have divided regions into subregions. We have selected subregions with broadly similar geological attributes relevant to the safety of a GDF, although there is still considerable variability in each subregion. The boundaries between subregions may locally coincide with the extent of a particular rock type of interest, or may correspond to discrete features such as faults.
