  • ASTM D6429 - 99(2011)e1 standard guide for selecting surface geophysical methods

    This guide applies to commonly used surface geophysical methods for those applications listed in Table 1. The rating system used in Table 1 is based upon the ability of each method to produce results under average field conditions when compared to other methods applied to the same application. An “A” rating implies a preferred method and a “B” rating implies an alternate ...

  • EPA investigates US hazardous waste site for soil & groundwater contamination

    The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is conducting a geophysical survey and will conduct a preliminary assessment of an illegal disposal site known as the Smith and Thompson Pumping Company Site in Lancaster, California. Court-ordered surface clean-up of the site is complete; the EPA’s investigation will determine if hazardous waste is buried underground. 'We’re conducing a thorough ...

  • The new GPR controller is here - Welcome SIR-4000

  • Kutztown University uses GPR to map cemetery

    In an attempt to determine if bodies originally buried at an old cemetery behind the present historical society were re-interred, university students and their professor spent Friday afternoon examining the old cemetery. Roughly a dozen students from Kutztown University and their instructor, Professor Laura Sherrod, used a magnetometer and ground penetrating radar to search for ...

  • Human pollution drives weekday southeast storms

    Summertime storms in the southeastern United States drop more rainfall midweek than on weekends, and NASA scientists say air pollution from human activities, such as emissions from traffic, businesses and factories, is likely driving that trend. The link between rainfall and the day of the week is evident in data from NASA's Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission satellite, known as TRMM. 'It ...

  • Satellite imagery shows fragile Wilkins Ice Shelf destabilised

    Satellite images show that icebergs have begun to calve from the northern front of the Wilkins Ice Shelf – indicating that the huge shelf has become unstable. This follows the collapse three weeks ago of the ice bridge that had previously linked the Antarctic mainland to Charcot Island. The ice bridge, which effectively formed a barrier pinning back the northern ice front of the central Wilkins ...

  • Arctic ice on the verge of another all-time low

    Following last summer's record minimum ice cover in the Arctic, current observations from ESA's Envisat satellite suggest that the extent of polar sea-ice may again shrink to a level very close to that of last year. Envisat observations from mid-August depict that a new record of low sea-ice coverage could be reached in a matter of weeks. The animation above is a series of mosaics of the Arctic ...

  • Triad expedites brownfields redevelopment in Fairbanks

    The Fairbanks North Star Borough (FNSB) used Triad in 2006-2007 to assess environmental conditions at a municipal property along the Chena River in Fairbanks, AK. FNSB accelerated the site investigation as part of a brownfields assessment grant received from the U.S. EPA in 2005. Low-level contamination had been identified onsite in past investigations, but its extent and impact on future ...

  • Wilkins Ice Shelf hanging by its last thread, says ESA

    The Wilkins Ice Shelf is experiencing further disintegration that is threatening the collapse of the ice bridge connecting the shelf to Charcot Island. Since the connection to the island in the image centre helps to stabilise the ice shelf, it is likely the break-up of the bridge will put the remainder of the ice shelf at risk. This animation, comprised of images acquired by Envisat’s Advanced ...
