THE TRADITIONAL METHOD

Seismic surveying is one of the oldest geophysical methods. With the sophisticated, problem-specific seismology methods available today, we can extract a whole array of information from the subsurface. We cover a broad range of areas, especially in the field of high-resolution near-surface engineering seismology.

Currently we offer the following methods:

  • Reflection seismology
  • Refraction seismic diving-wave tomography
  • Hybrid seismic surveying
  • Borehole seismic surveying


Using cutting-edge data acquisition technology and the latest evaluation software, we can handle practically all types of job, from standard rock depth calculations through to the presentation of complex geological structures. We provide a fast and targeted service and can undertake advanced geological interpretation if required.

Profile surveying using differential GPS and georeferenced presentation are included in our service package.

We also use techniques such as crosshole seismic surveying, which was developed to determine compression and shear wave velocity. This technique supplies important dynamic soil parameters for structures that need to be earthquake-resistant, such as shear modulus, Poisson's ratio and modulus of elasticity.
