WA – AquaLocate’s GF6 seismo-electric survey
instrument is designed to detect electrical signals generated by the passage of
seismic impulses through layered rocks, sediments and soils.
Designed to be portable, this product is
suitable for ground water and well water investigation, but this product can
also be used for environmental engineering work.
The quality and potential quantity of the
aquifer is estimated by semi-empirical relationships established between signal
bandwidth and amplitude and aquifer permeability. Systematic surveys along
traverses or in grids allow the lateral variability of aquifers to be mapped.
