Ground Conducitivity Meter

The ground conductivitity meter is an EM method where coils transmit an electromagnetic field and the response of the ground is measured, it is also known as a slingram method. Bargheer Geophysics are cabable of delivering several different GCM methods.

A much used method in Denmark is pulling the GCM instrument from with an ATV where we are able to collect much data in a short time. Using this method on good field conditions it is possible to collect in access of 50km of data in a field day, making it a very cost effictive tool for mapping the electric variations in the top 5-8 meters of the subsoil.

Applications for this method include:

  • Archelogical mapping
  • Geotechnical investigations, a great supplement to the traditional drillings
  • Mapping of the size of old landfills
  • Finding best sites for rainwater drainage
  • Drainage piping planning for agriculture
  • and many other uses
