  • Soil Analysis for Agriculture and Soils

    Field portable spectrometers are widely used for geologic remote sensing and mineral analysis applications. Recently, geologists have recognized that these same methods of reflectance spectroscopy have far reaching applications beyond remote sensing. Increasingly more applications in the geological science disciplines are surfacing, such as determining the composition of clay-rich soils for swell potential, and assessment and monitoring quality in cement manufacturing throughout the entire process—from characterizing raw materials, to quantitative analysis of the ground cement product, on through quality control of the materials entering the `feeder` and molten clinker (the apparatus used in the final cement product).

  • Geotechnical Applications

    Pore pressure variability and control is one of the most significant aspects of Geotechnical Engineering practice related to slope stability, underground openings, foundation of heavy structures, and water retention facilities. Pore pressure effects are most often controlled by natural small-scale hydrogeologic details. Characterization and management of pore pressures requires closely-arrayed repeated measurements to determine the effects of these details for design of appropriate mitigation measures, for performance monitoring and control of the selected mitigation measure. Since the late 1970’s the Westbay System has been used on some of the largest landslide studies in the world.

  • Groundwater Resource Management Applications

    Water agencies and private water companies are tasked with the challenge of developing and maintaining sustainable water supplies, often centered on groundwater. Since 1987, the Westbay System has provided water managers with the flexibility to characterize groundwater in four-dimensions, leading to the optimization of management activities and the development of sustainable management practices.
