Resistivity and Induced Polarization
Resistivity/IP is a geo-electrical method that can measure the ground’s resistivity and chargeability properties. Typical applications are groundwater exploration, environmental research and mineral prospecting. Guideline Geo offers solutions that range from cost-effective 1D measurements to advanced 3D imaging.
Ground Penetrating Radar
Ground penetrating radar is a method where electromagnetic waves are transmitted from an antenna, and reflect off layers and objects in the ground. These reflections are received with an antenna and create a picture of the subsurface. Offering the broadest range of GPR products in the world, MALÅ delivers solutions for a wide range of applications including climate Research, utility detection, road profiling, mineral exploration, archaeology, concrete investigations and many more.
Transient electromagnetics (TEM) is an extremely effective method in determining electrical conductivity of the subsurface at depths from a few meters down to several hundred meters. Applications include groundwater and mineral exploration and environmental investigations. ABEM has pioneered the advancement of the TEM technology resulting in solutions capable of accurately resolving subtle changes in geology in fine detail with excellent depth penetration.
Near-surface seismics is a method that utilizes a vibration source to measure propagation of elastic waves. The results will show the mechanical properties of the ground. Common applications are soil stability, rock quality and depth to bedrock. ABEM Terraloc Pro is a seismograph that can be used for seismic surveys ranging from simple refraction measurements to complex 3D cross-borehole tomography.
Vibration monitoring is a method for continuous measuring of ground vibrations caused by infrastructural projects, such as construction work. In many countries there are laws and regulations requiring monitoring to make sure that limits are not exceeded. ABEM Vibraloc is a stand-alone solution with built in sensors and power supply.
