Depth to Rock by Geophysics
Using Sound Waves To Map Underground Rock Formations
Here in Ireland, seismic refraction is the method most often used to determine the depth to rock. Our civil engineering clients need this information for projects like:
– Foundation design
– Excavation planning
– Quarry development
– Trenching for pipelines and cables
– Determining stability of slopes, embankments and quarry faces
Data from seismic refraction is recorded on site and processed on computer to create imaging that shows the depth and thickness of each rock layer.
Depending on the amount of detail needed, we combine the data from seismic refraction with other techniques to generate higher resolution field reports for our clients.
Peat Thickness Measurement by Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR)
Treading Gently On Protected Natural Spaces
Bogs and peat land are famous features of Ireland’s landscape, especially in the midlands and the west.
Much of this land is protected now for environmental reasons, but some development is still needed for roads, railways, wind power, solar power, and telecoms.
Ground penetrating radar (GPR) is an ideal method for this type of work.
The rough and rugged peatland terrain is difficult to survey on foot or by vehicle, so we use small, agile ATVs to carry radar equipment and cover ground efficiently.
Archaeological Geophysical Survey for Solar Farms
The Fastest Effective Way To Survey A Large Development Site
Solar farm developers need to know if there is anything under the ground which might delay their project completion, or make their desired site unsuitable for development.
