MICROGRAVITY SURVEYING

Microgravity is a precision surveying technique set apart from gravity method, used in shallow subsurface investigations.

Microgravity surveys identify changes (variations) in the subsurface soil and rock density. Basing on microgravity data GRAVITY ANOMALY MAP is produced which indicates anomalous area - potential voids, sinkholes, areas of less dense materials.

APPLICATIONS

    • sinkhole hazards assessment (mining areas)

    • detecting sub-surface voids and cavities

    • locating old mine workings and tunnels

    • tracing micro-tectonic features and variations in sub-surface density

    • identifying possible collapses due to karst activity
