EM Survey applications include poor growth assessments, historic and recent spill sites, plume tracking, pre-drill site assessments, and final site abandonment. We offer various geophysical instruments with customizable exploration depthsto explore specific regions of topsoil and subsoil. Our equipment can be either operator carried for close quarters or attached to a sled system to cover larger areas. A differential global positioning system (DGPS) provides high location accuracy with each EM reading. Highly detailed geophysical maps are produced by specialized software and the collected sampling data. Our reporting methods are straightforward and the EM maps make it easy to visualize subsoil conditions. The benefits from EM surveys are vast and are an extremely cost effective aid for environmental problem solving.
