A geophysical investigation is a complex endeavor demanding a variety of technical disciplines. Burgess & Niple’s (B&N) geophysical and geotechnical engineers, geologists, and hydrogeologists can solve many underground problems through technical, cost-effective assessment of existing conditions.
Traditional approaches to subsurface investigations include test borings, monitoring well installation, or test pit excavations. Geophysical test equipment, analytical techniques, and computer modeling analyses can provide rapid on-site characterization without disturbing the site. B&N emphasizes comprehensive cost-effective solutions to problem sites.
Using state-of-the-art techniques such as seismic refraction, electromagnetics, ground-penetrating radar, resistivity, gravity, and very-low-frequency radio waves, B&N has performed geophysical assessments of waste disposal sites, oil and gas production areas, groundwater supply areas, and mining and reclamation areas.
