The Link Between Tsunamis, Corvettes, Lost Ships and Bombs

Solving Environmental and Engineering Problems with Geoscientific Data

According to the Society of Exploration Geophysicists, near surface applications are increasing in number and societal value. The use of geoscientific data such as geophysics and boreholes, to investigate features in the shallow subsurface can be applied to a variety of environmental and engineering problems such as groundwater and soil contamination, mapping in urban environments, archaeological studies, and unexploded ordnance detection and classification.

This webinar highlights a variety of near surface case study examples, including:

  • 3D modelling of the subsoil prior to subway construction in Brazil
  • Mapping of magnetic field variations associated with contaminated lake sediments in Canada
  • Monitoring of a saline intrusion into aquifers in Mexico
  • Using gravity to assess sinkhole damage below the National Corvette Museum in the United States
  • Using high-resolution magnetic data to map the buried structure of King Herod’s Roman harbor in Israel
  • Using magnetics to detect unexploded ordnance prior to wind farm development in the North Sea
