Using a variety of methods, we map the physical properties of earth materials. Our specialities include the following:

  • Environmental geophysics
  • Borehole geophysics
  • Airborne geophysics
  • Fracture delineation
  • Global positioning systems
  • Mineral exploration
  • Marine geophysics
  • Near surface geophysics
  • Geologic mapping
  • Water budget analyses

Our techniques have helped clients from private industry, academia, and the government to do the following:

  • Determine preferential pathways for groundwater and contaminant migration.
  • Establish favorable host areas for economic minerals.
  • Investigate archaeological sites.
  • Locate buried objects, including unexploded ordnance and utilities.
  • Detect cavities, voids, and abandoned mineshafts.
  • Measure in-situ engineering properties, such as elastic moduli and shear wave velocities.
  • Detect the extent of a landfill.
  • Determine the level of the water table.
Methods We Employ
  • Magnetic surveys
  • Gravity surveys
  • Transient electromagnetics
  • Frequency domain electromagnetics
  • Induced polarization
  • Resistivity
  • Borehole techniques
  • Seismic reflection/refraction
  • Shear wave studies
  • Geophysical surveys for geological mapping
  • Ground penetrating radar
  • Side and vector scanning sonar
  • Spontaneous potential
