About engineering geophysics
Engineering geophysics is the application of geophysical methods to the investigation of sub-surface materials and structures that are likely to have significant engineering implications.
Engineering geophysics seeks to add valuable information by using geophyicals methods, this information could for example be finding depth to hard bedrock, finding the thickness of a peat.
The major advantage of using geophysics, especially in the early stages of a project is that the methods can provide an overview of the sub-surface. This information can then be used in the design of a drilling program to extract the right information and create the best possible understanding of the sub-surface materials.
