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 find 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.

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—...

AGI Suggested Reading | Part 4

Posted by Sean on Oct 31, 2018

Let’s continue with our eight-part series where we’ll be recommending some further reading for those of you who want to learn more about resistivity, induced polarization, and more in the realm of geophysics. The trio of suggestions that we’ve listed below cover geophysical inversion, induced polarization, and matrix computations. Reading any (or all) of these should help to broaden your knowledge and bolster your confidence going into your next geophysical survey.

 

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

Welcome back to our eight-part series where we’ll be recommending some further reading for those of you who want to learn more about resistivity, induced polarization, and more. We hope our suggestions so far have been helpful in broadening your understanding of these topics. And if not—well—the third time's the charm!

Posted by Sean on Oct 19, 2018

Welcome to this eight-part series where we’ll be recommending some further reading for those of you who want to learn more about resistivity, induced polarization, and more. We’ve used the publications in this list time and time again—and we want to share that knowledge with you!

 

This won’t be a definitive list (since there is a lot of great literature out there), but the publications we’ve chosen should help to give you a better understanding of these topics—which can only improve your future geophysical surveys. We’ll be linking to the...

How To Test For Underground Voids (Using Electrical Resistivity Imaging)

Posted by Sean on Aug 16, 2018

In our previous article, The 7 Most Common Signs of Sinkholes, we went over some visual cues to spot sinkholes before total collapse. Now, let’s get a little more hands-on and show you how you can actually test for sinkholes before they occur.

 

So let’s say you suspect that your site may have an underground void (maybe you see depressions in the ground or cracks in your foundation). If you see any signs of a sinkhole, you’ll have to test the area to see what kind of subsidence or sinkhole you’...
