Seminar Invitation

AGI hosts two separate seminars several times a year.
The Resistivity Imaging Seminar covers all aspects of electrical resistivity imaging methods. This includes resistivity imaging theory, terrestrial survey design and acquisition with AGI SuperSting equipment, in-depth understanding of resistivity imaging methods and resistivity data processing with AGI EarthImager software.
The Marine Resistivity Imaging Seminar focuses on all aspects of marine resistivity acquisition and data processing. This course discusses the details of continuous resistivity profiling (CRP) with an electrode tow streamer near the surface of water as well as underwater resistivity imaging with stationary, underwater resistivity cables on the bottom.

Resistivity Imaging Seminar




Results processing

AGI invites you to attend a three-day seminar focusing on Electrical Resistivity Imaging with the Sting/Swift system. The AGI Resistivity Imaging Seminar is designed for those professionals who are involved in, beginning to consider, or have oversight/review responsibilities of others currently conducting DC Resistivity or IP imaging surveys. This seminar is a "hands-on" seminar covering DC Resistivity and IP imaging topics such as: theory; data acquisition; field procedures; data processing; data presentation; and interpretation using the AGI SuperSting Earth Resistivity/IP/SP System and AGI EarthImager software.

    - Comparing different electrode arrays
    - Prepare command files
    - Load command files into the SuperSting memory
    - Discussion of "best practices" for field acquisition
  • Electrical resistivity case histories

Day 2:

  • Field survey and field acquisition discussions
  • Downloading data from the SuperSting
  • Introduction to data processing with AGI EarthImager2D

Marine Resistivity Imaging Seminar


AGI invites you to attend a three-day seminar on marine resistivity imaging. This short course is intended for those professionals interested in continuous resistivity profiling (CRP) with a boat-towed electrode streamer on the water and underwater resistivity imaging with a stationary, underwater cable on the bottom. This seminar will cover all aspects of marine resistivity imaging such as AGI SuperSting R8 Marine system, marine resistivity imaging survey design, field acquisition procedures, data processing and interpretation.

The seminar will begin promptly at 9:00AM and will last until approximately 5:00PM each day. Lunch and refreshments will be provided by AGI.

Seminar Agenda for Marine Resistivity Imaging:

Day 1: Introduction and stationary, underwater cable acquisition

  • Introduction
  • Basic Resistivity Theory
  • Case histories
  • AGI SuperSting R8 Marine system
    - SuperSting R8 Marine meter
    - Electrode streamer
    - Bottom cable
  • Preparation for field survey
  • Underwater resistivity imaging with a stationary, underwater cable

Day 2: Marine tow streamer acquisition

  • Introduction and mobilization to marina
  • Preparation for marine resistivity data acquisition at nearby lake
  • Continuous resistivity profiling (CRP) with a towed electrode streamer in a lake

Day 3: Marine Data Processing

  • Data processing
    - AGI SuperSting Administrator
    - Marine Log Manager
    - AGI EarthImager
    - Processing data collected on Day 1 & Day 2

Feedback of Seminar Participants

September seminar participants

Here are some of the comments from the course evaluation sheets from the seminar participants:

  • "I was very pleased with the instructors' responses to questions. Their responses were thorough and complete. Other training courses often leave you with more questions because they do not completely asnwer your first question."
  • "Immediately applicable to my work."
  • "The ability to respond to any given question in the related field. Friendlyness."
  • "Knowledge of the instructor about equipment, software and examples. Very good! Congratulations."
  • "I've never been in other training courses but I think this course was ecellent."
