Ground Penetrating Radar
Ground Penetrating Radar surveys are a non-invasive way to measure the differences in dielectric properties of buried materials and layers of the earth; by measuring these properties, we can map out interruptions in soil sequences caused by human or natural processes. We regularly utilize a variety of GPR antennas to accurately map cemeteries, prospect for unmarked graves, and archaeological sites. We regularly utilize a variety of Geophysical Survey Systems, Inc. (GSSI) GPR antennas to accurately map cemeteries, prospect for unmarked graves, and archaeological sites.
TerraSearch Geophysical tailors each survey to meet our clients individual needs. Contact us and we will prepare a scope of work for your project, at no charge, to conduct the requested survey. All survey work will be designed to comply with local, state, and federal regulations including any necessary permits.
We conduct background research about all project areas prior to implementation of a survey, to ensure that we are providing our clients with the most appropriate survey techniques. This background research is incorporated into the survey design, implementation, and report preparation.
On Site Work
Conduct the predetermined surveys at the project location. Depending on project scope, data collection may require multiple days/weeks of fieldwork.
Data Analysis and Report Preparation
Following the collection of background research and field data, a companion report will be prepared that discusses location and natural condition of the project area (e.g., topography, soils, and noted disturbances), history of the project area, the methods used during survey, and the results of the investigation.
Dr. Leslie and Mr. George started this company after recognizing the need for specialized geophysical work as a companion to Cultural Resource Management surveys required through local, state, and federal regulations as well as to provide services to academic and research based institutions.
