Geophysical Investigations


During geophysical investigations, GCE scientists collect and diagnose ground samples for possible contamination.

What is a Geophysical Investigation?

A Geophysical Investigation is the application of a variety of non-intrusive and/or intrusive tools to gather information about the physical properties of the subsurface of a subject property. Information provided by these tools can be applied to locate buried objects (i.e. underground storage tanks), to determine geologic and hydrogeologic conditions, and, occasionally, to locate residual or floating product.

How does this affect you?

Geophysical investigations can be utilized to determine the soil content for construction of structures on a Site.
