Geophysical surveys can detect and profile contaminants leaking from industrial spills, pipes and tanks.
Electromagnetic (EM) Conductivity meters, Electrical Resistance Tomography (ERT) and Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) are also able to determine the profile and path of hazardous materials which are leaching into the environment.
Landfill boundaries can easily be mapped using GPR and Electromagnetic Conductivity, as well the extent of contaminants which have leached into surrounding soils can also be mapped and profiled using GPR and EM techniques.

Electromagnetic Conductivity Surveys
Electromagnetic Conductivity Surveys can be used to map: Contaminant plumes, Landfill Delineation and any Inorganic Matter.
