TerraDat

TerraDat was established by Nick Russill and Rob McDonald in the UK and is based since then in Cardiff, the Capital City of Wales. In the beginning our dominant expertise was in seismic refraction, shallow seismic reflection and geo-electrical techniques applied to ground engineering problems. During the second and third years the Company`s scope had widened to cover landfill and environmental assessments using the latest technologies. Work had developed from a UK base to a worldwide prospect employing all modern geophysical methods. TerraDat aims to provide the highest quality non-destructive geophysical surveys to a broad cross section of industries using a multi-disciplinary approach. We undertake to continually invest in our staff and technical facilities so we can combine this with our extensive global experience and pass this on to our customers as a service of the highest quality.

TerraDat Geophysics was established in 1992 to address the need for increased awareness of the subsurface in the context of land use and environmental legislation. About that time many of the geophysical techniques that had been standard in deeper, large scale mineral-type surveys took advantage of technological developments and became smaller, more portable and offered higher resolution of the buried physical targets that were being mapped.

Since our incorporation, we have worked hard to establish to the adoption of geophysical mapping technology in a wide range of industries ranging from landfill, nuclear site characterisation, contaminated land mapping, coastal geotechnics and civil engineering projects.

TerraDat aims to provide the highest quality non-destructive geophysical surveys to a broad cross section of industries using a multi-disciplinary approach. We undertake to continually invest in our staff and technical facilities so we can combine this with our extensive global experience and pass this on to our customers as a service of the highest quality.

In recognition that geophysics is a relatively new and constantly evolving science, we will maintain a commitment to educating and training new graduates and the industy through technical contributions to research projects and publications.
