A technical overview of engineering geophysics explaining the pros and cons of different methods and highlighting key innovations using case studies. Applications will include investigation of brownfield sites, ground stratigraphy, structural geology, geohazards and determination of engineering parameters.
Advanced subsurface insight is theme of Fugro geophysics seminar
The use of geophysics to screen for geotechnical properties, outline stratigraphy and detect and characterise geohazards such as faulting, cavities and contamination, among other sources of ground risk, is the focus of a Fugro seminar taking place on November 14th in Wallingford (UK).
The one-day event, ‘Engineering Geophysics’, will lift the lid on developments in geophysics aimed at optimising design and reducing the risks associated with safety, programme, environmental impact and cost.
Experts will advise on the essential steps for commissioning effective investigations, explaining how an integrated multi-phase approach delivers best value and benefits the wider site characterisation picture.
Presentations will include an overview of surface and borehole methods for land and shallow water applications and their use in maximising data quality on features such as karst, voids, geohazards, UXO, hydrogeology, ground stratigraphy and structure. Also in the spotlight will be quasi-real time reporting of data via powerful online portals, enabling timely, accurate progress with planning, design and cost forecasting.
Free to attend, the seminar will benefit industry professionals who will share the experience of Fugro’s geophysicists in complex, large-scale projects, such as HS2, Moorside and Sirius Minerals’ polyhalite project.
