Infrastructure refers to a set of systems and services that enable a country or region to operate successfully. The infrastructure we come across in our daily lives includes physical features we can travel on or through such as roads, railways, bridges, and tunnels. It also extends to the network of buried utilities, such as electricity and telecommunications lines, water supply and gas pipelines, drainage and sewers.
Geotechnical engineering, cable routing, pipeline inspection and routing, tunnel lining, location of buried utilities. Searching for different metallic and non-metallic objects (local items, pipes, wires, underground tanks etc.), buried into the ground.
Bathymetry – freshwater lake/riverbed investigations. Bedrock profiling. Karst investigations and sinkhole mapping. Stratigraphy studies. Water table studies. Sinkhole investigation.
Bridge, road and runway investigations. Asphalt thickness, base layer profiling and thickness, reinforcement evaluations, structure, subsidence and voids. Road-mapping.
Law Enforcement & Military: Forensic and medicine.
Ground penetrating radar (GPR) works exceptionally well in ice and snow, as the properties of these materials allow deep penetration of the GPR signal. Consequently, GPR is a useful tool to measure the depth of ice and snow, the thickness and layer structure, and to find objects buried within.
Mining: Mineral exploration, mine planning.
Hazardous waste disposal and ground contamination studies. Ground water studies – water content / saltwater intrusion. Landfill delineationSite investigations and assessment. Underground storage tank and drum investigation.
Ground penetrating radar (GPR) presents the archaeologist with a way to non-destructively and non-intrusively image the hidden and lost world below. Of all the geophysical technologies in the archaeologist toolbox, GPR is generally accepted as the easiest to deploy with the best data resolution. GPR offers a convenient, reliable, and non-destructive way to investigate the sub-surface, which streamlines the traditional excavation work of archaeologists. Surveying brown and greenfield sites can indicate areas of...
