The Portuguese Mineral Occurrences and Resources Information System (SIORMINP) provides access to geoscientific, technical and economic information on occurrences, reserves and resources and areas with mining potential known in mainland Portugal.
The geological map of Spain and Portugal at 1:1 000 000 scale is a renewed version of the geological map of the Iberian Peninsula and the territories of Ceuta, Melilla and the Balearic, Canaries, Azores and Madeira islands. This small-scale map is edited jointly periodically by the Geological surveys of Spain (IGME) and Portugal (LNEG). This new version includes for the first time the geological information of the Spanish and Portuguese continental shelves and also the geology of the Atlantic Portuguese islands. This map records all the new geological knowledge provided by the complete survey at 1:50 000 scale in Spain (IGME’s MAGNA Plan) and the systematic geological mapping series developed in Portugal by the LNEG. The continental portion of the map was compiled starting from original drafts at 1:400 000 scale made for every main geological unit: Iberian Variscan Massif, Pyrenees, Betics, Cantabrian and Iberian cordilleras and the Duero, Ebro and Tajo Cenozoic basins for the territory of Spain and the geological maps at 1:200 000 scale in Portugal.
Areas that evidence the occurrence of submarine landslides, located between the Middle Atlantic Rift zone (Azores archipelago) and the Continental margin.
Most important faults identified in the portuguese offshore, occurring between the Middle Atlantic Rift zone (Azores archipelago) and the Continental margin.
The Portuguese HydroGeological Resources Database provides geological and hydrogeological information for drill holes, wells, springs and boreholes
The portuguese national seismic network consists of a large and varied set of seismic stations comprising sensors of various types (broadband, short and strong-motion), high dynamic acquisition systems and real-time data transmission or near real-time through satellite and internet (mobile and fixed). The purpose of this device is the monitoring and surveillance of seismic activity throughout the national territory and surrounding areas, as well as to contribute to the seismic monitoring on a global scale and as an early warning system for tsunamis.
Location of structures resulting from the submarine fluids emissions, such as: mud volcanoes (methane hydrates); Pockmaks (methane) and hydrothermal vents (fluids enriched in salts and metallic elements), located between the Mid-Atlantic Rift zone (Azores archipelago) and the continental margin.
This dataset contains information related to the mineral occurrences, reserves and resources, associated commodities, geology, mines, mining activities and mining wastes of Portugal. This information is sourced on LNEG’s database SIORMINP – Information system of Portuguese mineral occurrences and resources, initiated in 1997, which contains geoscientific, technical and economic information on occurrences, reserves and resources and areas with mining potential. Moreover, this information is the result of Portuguese data structure and vocabulary used in former European projects, namely Eurogeosource and Promine, here improved, enlarged and adjusted to the database model and codelists of Minerals4EU. The service was created in the framework of the Minerals4EU project and its harmonized according to INSPIRE requirements.
Sedimentological characterization of part of the continental shelf. Folk classification (7 classes).
