Groundwater Survey is adequately equipped with modern geophysical and hydrogeological instruments. Our ABEM SAS 1000 terrameters have high quality data resolution with a capability of penetrating up to 500m depth, and thus able to map deep seated aquifers. We are acquiring a Lund Imaging System for true geo-tomography. This state of the art system makes it possible to make very detailed continuous 2-dimensional resistivity and IP profiles. In this way, the system is able to generate continuous 2D profile of the earth up to 150m depth, virtually
Instantaneously and effortlessly. We also have various 4-WD vehicles and on commissioning the company is generally in a position to mobilize within one week’s notice.Our staff is well trained in the use of advanced geophysical and hydrogeological equipment, combined with the latest computer hardware and software applications.
In addition, our technical library (including a comprehensive collection of aerial photographs, complete sets of topographical and geological maps, and a computerized database of more than 800 previous studies) provides a useful source of information and quick reference.
