BHATE Geosciences brings together four decades of geophysics data acquisition and processing leadership with a clear focus on our clients’ needs. We back our experience and knowledge with state-of-the-art technology, staff training and a broad range of services.

Geophysical exploration is conducted to supplement and enhance geotechnical data. 3-D models can be created using a combination of field exploration and subsurface geophysical mapping for site characterization of the geological structure, groundwater, and underground man made conditions.

Geophysics Applications

Ground Penetrating Radar GPR Survey

BHATE specializes in the following geophysical methods:

  • Ground penetrating radar (GPR surveys)
  • Seismic refraction, seismic reflection, MASW.  Seismic refraction investigates the subsurface by generating arrival time and offset distance information
  • Electrical resistivity- response of the earth to induced electrical current.
  • Microgravity surveys to detect sub-surface cavities or changes in sub-surface density

BHATE uses geophysics, structural condition evaluation of buildings, infrastructure assessment for roads, bridges and runways and other applications. The benefits include:

  • Non-destructive. It is ideal for use in populated areas or structures in active use with minimal disruption.
  • Cost-effective. Geophysics does not require excavation or direct access to subsurface except for subsequent localized validation of findings It provides a means of evaluating large areas rapidly.
  • Comprehensive. Combinations of methods can provide the means of applying different techniques to solve complex problems.
  • Proven. The majority of techniques have been in existence for more than a half-century. BHATE has provided geophysics services on a variety of engineering projects for over 40 years.
