Our Favorite Sinkhole - The Corvette Cave

Posted by Sean on Feb 11, 2019

 

Warning—this article contains unsettling images if you’re a Corvette lover.

 

It may be odd that we here at AGI have a favorite sinkhole. But when you’ve been in the business as long as we have, it would be weird if we didn’t have a favorite sinkhole. As the title of this article suggests, we’re taking a quick look back at a sinkhole known as the “Corvette Cave”.

 

Early one morning in 2014, a 30-foot-deep sinkhole opened up at the National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, Kentucky. Thankfully, this was during a time when potentially...

What To Do Once You Find An Air-Filled Void

Posted by Sean on Jan 23, 2019

 

We seem to have formed a bit of a sinkhole blog trilogy. First, we informed you on the 7 Common Signs of Sinkholes. After that, we showed you how you can Test for Sinkholes. Now, in this article, we want to share what to do once you find an air-filled void on your property.

 

Half the battle:

The good news is that you’ve already done most of what you need to do at this point. You’ve already done a geophysical survey—such as an...

AGI Suggested Reading | Part 8

Posted by Sean on Nov 19, 2018

We’re finally at the end of this eight-part series. We would like to say “we’ve saved the best suggestions for last”, but all of our suggestions are pretty fantastic reads if you want to learn more about resistivity, induced polarization, and more. Maybe its because we're posting this around the holiday season, or maybe its because we're sad to see the series end, but we've included 4 entries this time around instead of 3. 

 

As we’ve mentioned in previous posts, let us know if you have suggestions for further reading. It doesn’t even have to be about the...

2018 Seminars Are Done!

Posted by Sean on Nov 16, 2018

If you’ve taken a peek at our 2018 Seminar Calendar, you’ll notice that we’re finishing up our last seminar of the year. This year, we’ve hosted several seminars between the AGI and AGE offices—which has allowed us to speak to so many of our customers face to face. While it’s a lot of work to put our seminars together—we’ve enjoyed every minute of it. We always get tons of great questions, feedback, and ideas to take into next year.

 

Speaking of next year, we’ll let everyone know once the 2019...

Goodbye 2018 Seminars. See you in 2019!

AGI Suggested Reading | Part 7

Posted by Sean on Nov 13, 2018

Our eight-part series is nearly concluded. But don’t worry! We still have a few more suggestions for you if you want to learn more about resistivity, induced polarization, and more. In fact, we plan on revisiting this series in the future with newer publications. For now, we’re sticking with the tried-and-true reads that have influenced us over the years. If you have any suggestions on what you think is essential reading, just let us know on social media. We want to keep sharing with our community. 

In case you’ve missed it, here are our previous recommendations...

AGI Suggested Reading | Part 6

Posted by Sean on Nov 08, 2018

We’re moving right along through this eight-part series! Here is our latest trio of recommendations for further reading. These picks cover experimental design, induced polarization, and the inverse problem theory. You can use these publications as a starting point in expanding your knowledge on these topics. It’s our hope that in checking out these books and papers, it will lead you to finding picks that are beyond our list (and if you find something great, let us know on social media)!

 

For those of you who want to learn more about resistivity, induced...

AGI Suggested Reading | Part 5

Posted by Sean on Nov 05, 2018

We’re more than halfway through this eight-part series! Hopefully you’ve had a chance to pick up some of our recommendations so far (links below). If you’re just joining this series, we’ve been recommending some further reading for those of you who want to learn more about resistivity, induced polarization, and more. Again, this series isn’t comprehensive—but we think these publications will point you in the right direction.   

 

In case you missed them, here are the previous suggestions in this series:

AGI's Panama Seminar Recap

Posted by Sean on Nov 02, 2018

Our very own Eduardo Rodrigues—from our Madrid office—spent a few days in Panama, where he hosted a seminar.

 

One of the great things about our field is that as long as there’s earth, there’s someone who’s interested in surveying the earth. And as long as someone is interested in earth surveys, there’s someone who's interested in Electrical Resistivity Imaging. It’s always great when we get outside of our offices for a little “T&T” (travel & teaching). It gives us a chance to meet others in our field—or thinking about entering our field—...
