Geophysical surveys, including ground-penetrating radar (GPR)
When investigating ground and structures, deploying up-to-date geophysical equipment, coupled with the field application of the latest processing and visualisation software, can provide key information unavailable through other means.
Geophysical surveying techniques provide a toolbox of rapid, discrete and cost-effective methods for locating and identifying subsurface features.
RSK offers expertise and survey design and site investigation services, and advises on the correct application of individual techniques. We routinely apply state-of-the-art geophysical instrumentation to identifying subsurface variations associated with manmade and natural phenomena. Our services use non-destructive testing methodologies that rely on contrasts in physical properties to detect features in the subsurface or within structures. The methodologies include
- GPR surveys
- Electromagnetic ground conductivity surveying
- Resistivity tomography
- Magnetic surveying
- Microgravity surveying
- Seismic reflection and refraction
- Surface wave ground stiffness
- Self potential imaging
- Induced polarisation imaging.
