Quick Tip: Depth of Investigation for ERI Surveys

Posted by Sean on Apr 15, 2019

 

You can’t talk about Electrical Resistivity Imaging (ERI) surveys without eventually talking about depth. Aside from resolution, depth of investigation is one of the first talking points our customers want to discuss when considering ERI surveys.  

 

What is depth dependent on in ERI?

First of all, depth of investigation will depend on the largest array span you use during your survey. Array span shouldn’t be confused with survey line length. It’s a common misconception that longer survey lines=more depth or that roll-along=more...

Quick Tips: Electrode Preparation and Removal

Posted by Sean on Apr 10, 2019

We here at AGI are big advocates of saving time. Seriously, if time is money—then we’re serious penny pinchers. That said, we’re always looking to pass on time-saving tips to you! Today we’re showing you a couple of quick tips that can save you a couple of minutes on the field. Particularly, these tips are focused on electrode preparation and removal. You may scoff at saving a few minutes, but here in the Texas sun—a few minutes is the difference between a sun tan and sun burn!

 

Tip 1: Getting the stakes installed correctly will save you troubleshooting...

Typical Ranges of Resistivities for Common Materials

Posted by Sean on Mar 28, 2019

 

Electrical Resistivity Imaging (ERI) is a fantastic geophysical method for subsurface exploration and delineation (it certainly is our favorite!). In this article, we want to focus more on the “geo” part of geophysics and take a look at some resistivity values for common materials.

 

You see, ERI works best when you have a good knowledge of the geology of your survey area. In fact, when we’re helping new customers design their survey, or helping someone in the field—the geology of the area is one of our first questions.

Single-Channel vs Multiple-Channel Systems

Posted by Sean on Mar 26, 2019

Our customers often want to get the most out of our equipment while sticking to their budget. As such, many will opt for a cheaper single-channel system instead of a multiple-channel system. When customers are weighing the options, we often get the question “What’s the difference between the two?”.

 

The simple answer? Speed.

 

Of course, there are a few more bells and whistles that a multi-channel system offers, but the key difference is how much faster it is when compared to a single-channel. That’s what we’ll focus on in this...

How will weather conditions affect your geophysical surveys?

Posted by Sean on Mar 21, 2019

In the field, you’ll often find out that Mother Nature isn’t concerned with your project timelines. But whether there’s rain or shine, you’re expected to meet your deadlines. As such, we often get questions from our customers on what kind of weather is reasonable to work in. So in this post, we’ll be listing the weather conditions that pose no problems, conditions that will slow you down, and conditions that will halt your survey completely.  

 

We’ll be discussing how weather affects your survey in general. If you want to learn more about how our...

Customer Spotlight: Conrey Hydrogeology Program | A Rare Look At A Stationary Submerged Marine Survey

Posted by Sean on Feb 14, 2019

 

One of the coolest applications of resistivity is in the marine environment. Don’t get us wrong, we love solid earth too (it’s our bread and butter after all)—but when you see footage like the video below, you can’t help but be blown away.

 

Our friend, Matt Becker from the Conrey Hydrogeology Program at California State University Long Beach recently used our passive graphite electrode cables to do a stationary submerged marine survey. As the name...
