Hydrogeological field guide to the Wessex Basin

By R. Tyler-Whittle, P. Shand, K.J. Griffiths and W.M. Edmunds


This report was produced as an itinerary for a European fieldtrip. The fieldtrip provided the\ud introduction to a major programme of research into the Baseline water quality of European aquifers.\ud Delegates from 10 countries attended the fieldtrip and this report was intended not only to provide\ud details on the area, within the itinerary, but also to provide further information on the geology and\ud hydrogeology of the Wessex Basin for future reference within the project
