Understanding the geology at specific project sites can be essential for a wide variety of applications, including construction design, water supply investigations, environmental concerns, and general site stability. Geophysical tools allow for a rapid characterization of site geology that, when correlated to borings or other information, provide continuous profiles of geologic conditions that otherwise would not be available.
- Map depth to bedrock and integrity of bedrock
- Delineate specific strata (sand, silt, clay) within the overburden unit
- Identify fractures and flow pathways within bedrock
- Identify porous zones and specific strata that are ideal for water supply
- Characterize subsurface chlorinated plumes
- Identify fresh/salt water interface
- Evaluate the seismic characteristics of the subsurface for IBC characterization
