Welcome to the first edition of Tellus News!

Tellus is a ground and airborne geoscience mapping programme, collecting chemical and geophysical data that will inform the management of Ireland’s environment and natural resources.

Now into its fifth year, Tellus has been established as a programme area in the Geological Survey of Ireland following two successful surveying phases in the border and north midlands regions. GSI has developed a strategy to advance Tellus surveying nationally on a phased basis, beginning with a three‐year plan to complete 50% of the country by the end of 2017. The phases have been developed with significant input from a wide range of stakeholders.  Read on for progress with airborne and ground based surveying so far this year.
