GEOTESTA can apply a range of non-intrusive seismic methods to help determine the most suitable equipment, alignment and design criteria for road, rail, tunnel and dredging projects. These methods include:

  • Seismic refraction and reflection
  • Multichannel Analysis of Surface Waves (MASW)
  • Marine Seismic

We have a geophysics team with individuals that have over 30 years of experience across of a broad field of geophysical applications. Our team works closely with engineers, geologists and hydrogeologists.

Typical applications include:

  • Subsurface investigation for tunnelling projects.
  • Excavatibility and depth to bedrock for road and rail alignments.
  • Subsurface investigation for tunnelling projects.
  • Excavatibility, rippability and depth to bedrock for road and rail alignments.
  • Seismic Hazard assessments.
  • Fault and fracture studies.
  • Slope stability studies / Landslides.
  • Subsurface cavity detection.
  • Tailings dam geotechnics.
