Well it’s not everyday that we get to use a headline like that—but it’s true! Last year in China, a customer of ours—China Geological Survey (CGS)—worked with The University of Electronic Science and Technology, and Laurel Technologies for an extraordinary project. The joint research team was tasked to conduct an underwater and shoreline geophysical exploration of the Shen Yin site in Jiangkou after a few artifacts were discovered by locals near the shores of a river.
So often, after someone asks "What is groundwater?", the next immediete question is "How do I find groundwater?". Well today, we're teaching you the best way we know how to find groundwater—Electrical Resistivity Imaging. First things first, we have to remember where groundwater can be found. As you know from our Groundwater Education Series, an aquifer is a natural underground reservoir of water that can be used as a water source.
It’s time again for another entry in our ongoing groundwater series. Today, we’re talking about the more dangerous aspect of groundwater. Specifically, groundwater pollution and contamination. Unfortunately, there are far too many ways for us to cover in one post—but we can always revisit this topic in the future.
Odds are you’ve probably seen a sinkhole before. If not in person, then on the news—as they tend to make for pretty sensational stories. It’s an exciting, albeit dangerous, natural geological phenomena that happens a lot. The aftermath is hard to miss once it occurs, but there are ways to spot a sinkhole beforehand. In this article, we’re helping you spot the 7 most common signs of sinkholes before they occur. Use these indicators when scoping out the safety of your property—it could help save a lot of risk and money!
In our ongoing educational series, What you need to know about Groundwater, we mentioned some organizations that help provide drinkable groundwater to areas that are desperate for it. In this post, we wanted to focus on one of those organizations—and a previous customer of ours—4africa (Previously East African Ministries/Radler Foundation).
We’ve covered a lot so far in our groundwater educational series (But really, we’re just getting started!). Today, we want to take a closer look at The United States’ use of groundwater. Check out the infographic below to see a few ways we use groundwater in the U.S.
All data used in the infographic was sourced from The National Groundwater Association
We’re packing our bags and heading to Nashville next week to attend SAGEEP 2018 (March 25th-29th). We’ve been working hard on a new product—and we’re excited to announce that we’ll be unveiling it at the show! We hope to see both familiar and new faces (Oh, and to try some Nashville-style hot chicken!)
