SGU publishes a large number of reports and maps in our various publications. The publications describe the results of various surveys, investigations and assignments. Here, our various series are briefly presented.
The publications present information about bedrock, Quaternary deposits, groundwater, geophysical and geochemical conditions and mineral deposits in Sweden’s land areas and continental shelf. The level of detail and content are adapted to different user groups and purposes. The scales most commonly used in our published maps are 1:50,000, 1:100,000 and 1:250,000. Larger scales are also used. This is a list of our different official publications.
Maps and descriptions on all themes. Since 2005, our maps and descriptions covering different themes have been published in this one series. Common scales are 1:50 000, 1:100 000, 1:200 000, 1:250 000 and 1:1 000 000, with descriptions given either separately or on the actual map.
