Geophysical Tools Applied to Geology and Hydrogeology

  • Mapping alluvium thickness, depth to rock, rock stratigraphy and structure (seismic, resistivity, ground-penetrating radar)
  • Defining rock structure attitude and orientation in a virtual core (televiewer)
  • Locating faults and fracture zones which may be engineering targets of concern (seismic reflection) or groundwater conduits/barriers (electrical resistivity, seismic refraction)
  • Mapping the water table (seismic refraction, resistivity)
  • Identifying voids, caves, and sinkholes in karst-prone geologic environments (microgravity, resistivity, GPR
  • Revealing zones of salt water intrusion into fresh water systems (electromagnetics, resistivity)
