Geophysical Survey Design

Geophysical Survey Design


Let us help you determine which geophysical technique will be suitable and provide the most cost-effective solution for your project. If geophysical solutions do not represent the best option, we will give guidance or recommend the use of more suitable non-geophysical methodologies and associated service providers that we believe will be a better fit. We take a proactive approach in fully understanding the objectives of your project and the requirements and restrictions that you may have in order to develop a comprehensive geophysical survey plan that will deliver the desired results in line with your project budget.

Our staff will spend time with you to understand what information rather than data it is that you require in order for you to make the correct decision. We believe by gaining the correct information supported by valid and relevant data lead to insight and the correct decisions. Details of the most suitable geophysical techniques, the survey platform – whether it be ground, water, or air as well as other survey specifications and configurations specifications will be customise to provide solutions in line with project objectives. Details of the most suitable geophysical techniques, the survey platform – whether it be ground, sea, or air and other specifications will then be driven by how to best provide quantitative and objective answers to your problem.

Typical survey parameters considered when designing a geophysical program include the type of target, its estimated depth, size and physical properties, the availability and provenance of any pre-existing geological, geophysical or geotechnical information, any environmental, logistical, OH&S considerations on field acquisition, and the time frame for delivery of the product.

After establishing the critical input parameters, our team of professional geoscientists will tailor a program to suit, making full use of our extensive range of specialist equipment and a suite of leading industry and proprietry processing, QA/QC and interpretation packages. Planning will extend down to the format and layout of digital and hard copy data and derivative products such that they integrate seamlessly into the client’s preferred data management system of choice.

ASST and its associates have together successfully provided geoscientific solutions using the full spectrum of acquisition, processing and interpretation techniques – from the well-established to the leading edge of developments in the industry.

A key process in any geoscientific program is the detailed interrogation of existing information. Foremost, a rigorous analysis of historic data, making use of the latest analysis tools, can often yield valuable insight towards the question at hand.

ASST and its associates are experts at collating available information, undertaking quality assessments and integrating said information and observations into a suitable data interrogation environment. By following an outcome driven processes, extracting relevant information and results from the desktop study and existing data lead to a solid basis for designing future work and in particular choice of geophysical surveys and the design thereof.
