The possible application of geophysical techniques is vast. In our experience however, it is generally thought that geophysics is reserved for application to heritage sites or areas containing archaeology only. However, there is a much wider use for these techniques including Civil Engineering, as detailed below.
What does The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, Morning Glory by Oasis, the sound of the dial-up modem and the SIR3 radar system all have in common? They were all things that helped to make the 1990’s. We asked SUMO Directors Dr. John Gater and Peter Barker to take a trip down memory lane and look back at their 'old' geophysical equipment. After this, we began to see how far geophysics technology has come since.
