The Geological Mappers

Description

Spend a week with the British Geological Survey Team as they navigate sand dunes in order to produce a geological map of the United Arab Emirates, in this easy to understand video for KS4 science.

Why does a country need to have a geological map, and what does it reveal about the fundamental geology of a region? These are just some of the questions addressed by the team as they make their journey across the UAE.

They investigate how the vast oil deposits in the region were originally formed and show how geological mapping may help to find new reservoirs or new mineral deposits.

Their work also gives an insight into the tools and techniques that are used in mapping.
