    This method puts emphasis on the measurement of anomalies of the Earth's magnetic field, caused by the presence of reservoirs or structures on the subsurface. This technique allows to assess changes of nT in the Earth's magnetic field caused by the presence of some minerals. Those minerals are characterized by high magnetic susceptibility such as the magnetite.

    Information regarding an avalanche observed recently. Mapped based on direct observation of the event or observation following it. The information is obtained based on the nivometeorological observation network, rescue groups, countryside wardens, mountain guides, and ski and mountain resort personnel. In the event of important episodes and accidents the IGC technicians also gather information. The elements mapped mainly include the extent to which avalanches affect populated areas, roads, ski resorts and people who carry out mountain activities. Data began to be gathered in 1986. It is shown in blue.

    Information regarding an area exposed to an avalanche. Mapped based on analysis of the terrain and of signs that avalanches leave in their path, mainly, in forests. In Avalanche Zones, avalanches occur frequently and are of different sizes. Avalanche Zones have been systematically mapped throughout the region. They are shown in orange. There are two types of Avalanche Zones: zones where avalanches usually follow the same path, shown in orange, and zones where avalanches usually follow different paths, shown in pale orange.

    Physical properties and composition of geologic materials (rocks and sediments), their structure and their age as depicted in the Geological map 1:250,000, as well as geomorphological features and boreholes of Catalonia. This data set is conforming to the technical specifications of INSPIRE Administrative units.

  • The GeoBase of soils of Catalonia v1.0 is a database intended to store information on soils caught in the field and that necessary for generate soil maps of the territory of Catalonia at different scales, such as the Soil Map 1: 25,000 of Catalonia (MSC25M), or other maps that have been previously prepared (eg at scales 1: 25,000 and 1: 250,000). Contains information on soil profiles with varying levels of detail captured in the field (observations and pits), the composition on horizons, some of its physical and chemical characteristics as well as different types of soils that appear in an area, its spatial distribution.

    Seismic refraction method is based on analyzing the travel times of waves refracted under the critical angle on subsoil interfaces (velocity contrasts). Seismic energy is radiated downwards into the ground from a seismic source on or near the ground surface (e.g. weight drop, explosives,etc.), critically refracted at the interface travelling along it and radiated back to the surface. Observed refracted waves travel-times versus distance are converted into seismic velocity cross-sections of the subsurface.

    : Information regarding an avalanche observed in the past. Mapped based on a survey of inhabitants of the area where the phenomenon took place. The boundaries shown are based on the explanations given by the witnesses consulted. Information is usually taken from Avalanche Zones close to inhabited areas where avalanches have historically interfered with human activity. For this reason the majority of the information is found around these zones. They are shown in purple. Cartography often maps only the avalanche arrival zone, as the descriptions usually refer to their extent and the damage caused.
