Abstract The aims of this report are to document:_x000D_ 1. A range of methods that are currently used by the BGS stratigraphers to extract lithological information from geophysical logs (includes manual classification, cut-off analysis, mineral composition by linear inversion)._x000D_ 2. Alternative methods which, at present, are not routinely applied but are sufficiently practical and accessible that they could become important, including unsupervised (k-mean clustering) and supervised machine learning approaches._x000D_ The report does not aim or claim to be a complete inventory of all possible methods to derive lithological information from geophysical logs. The authors welcome correspondence and information on any additional methods that are available or emerging.
