OEMG global in partnership with Demco NV offers the Aquares Resistivity System for land and freshwater in Australasia. Aquares is a high resolution sub-bottom profiling system, modified from the proven principles and methods of land based geoelectrical survey. Aquares for Land offers the same operational and processing benefits of the Aquares marine systems. This includes enhanced acquisition and processing techniques that provide high resolution quantitative (i.e. depths and thicknesses) and qualitative (i.e. quality or resistivity) data about sub-bottom structural geology. It has brought resistivity to the forefront of land and freshwater sub-bottom investigations. This page explains why the Aquares is the superior choice for shallow sub-bottom surveys in most circumstances, over conventional acoustic systems and classical geo-electric techniques.
Key Benefits of the Aquares Resistivity Survey
If the land data is acquired on a suitable grid, it may be stitched together utilising proprietary krieging algorithms to create a 3-Dimensional map of the sub-bottom. This is an extremely useful tool for understanding the geological setting, and targeting geotechnical and/or environmental sampling.
Undertaking the Geophysics is one of the most important aspects of study for any major infrastructure project. It forms the base data for initial project approvals, design and cost estimates and allows clients to capture and own opportunity risk. Getting Geophysics right however is a difficult task and the risks of a poorly thought out or executed campaign are often underestimated. A detailed Aquares survey will provide the end user with a simplified actionable view of the geological setting that will add value to all phases of a project.
