Geophysics, SuperSting R8

January 15th, 2014


Geotechnology is excited to have recently purchased one of the newest geophysical tools available –  a SuperSting R8 Resistivity Meter with Wi-Fi capability.  The new instrument gives us the powerful ability to quickly collect resistivity data using 56 electrodes (expandable to 112) and to efficiently email data from the field to the office using Wi-Fi technology for speedy processing and analysis.  The instrument is manufactured by Advanced Geosciences, Inc., which advertises that the SuperSting provides the highest accuracy and lowest noise levels in the industry.

For many years Geotechnology has used multi-electrode resistivity systems for imaging depth to bedrock and karst features, including voids in soil and rock.  Now, with Wi-Fi capabilities for transmitting data in near real time, we can quickly collect, process and analyze initial data while the geophysical crew is still in the field.  Based on the expedited analysis of the collected data, we can adjust the locations for collecting subsequent data in order to better image and evaluate subsurface geologic features.  Geologic information, project schedules and the overall value of our resistivity surveys are improved without adding cost.
