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. 

With these solar farms covering hundreds of acres, this investigation used to take a long time and be very expensive. Magnetic gradiometry is an efficient way to investigate land using a mobile array of sensors.
This type of archaeological geophysical survey is fast and cost-effective, helping project managers make good decisions, and reducing delays.
