Thickness Of Cover
Determining the thickness of over burden can be a significant benefit in many applications. One example would be determining the volume needed to be excavated of an undesirable material. Also you could determine the volume of bed rock or material needed to be removed before coming to bed rock. A significant clay layer might be of interest and in the area. All of these and more can be determined using our GPR equipment.
There is a significant benefit using GPR rather than bore data since GPR data is collected either in 3-D or continuous cross sections rather than just one point.
The thickness of over burden covering this area of buried debris can be quickly determined as approximately 0.9 meters. This could be a desired material layer, water table, bedrock or almost anything.
