We use electrical conductivity (EM), electrical resistivity and Ground Penetrating Radar geophysical techniques for site investigations.

Electrical Conductivity (EM)

EM is a method for rapidly mapping surface variations in geology based upon the material's ability to conduct an electrical current.  Clays in general conduct an electrical current whereas sand and gravel resist an electrical current. 

 

We have successfully used EM to trace a narrow buried sand and gravel channel  cutting into boulder clay and to target exploration drilling.
 

Electrical Resistivity

Resistivity basically measures the inverse of conductivity such that sands and gravels have a high resistance and clays have a low resistance to an induced electrical current. Interpretation of the resistivity methods produces a 'cross section' through the ground. In the image below (underneath our East Yorkshire office) the red colours represent dry chalk, the pale blue colours represent chalk below the water table and the dark blue colours represent boulder clay.

Ground Penertrating Radar (GPR)

We have also successfully used our utility location location equipment (GPR) in conjunction with our geotechnical measuring equipment (Mackintosh Probe) to map variations in peat thickness.

 

SECTORS OF OPERATION

As well as offering bespoke services to the the quarrying, mining, and construction sectors and we also provide services to to local authorities, government agencies and other public sector bodies.  Our expertise has also been used by clients in the media and agricultural industries.
