Geo-Sense has been a leader in shallow (near-surface) geophysics and Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) methods since 1990. We provide geophysical services for civil engineering, environmental science, archaeology and Non-Destructive Testing applications, with a successful record of projects in Israel and worldwide.
Geology and Geophysics
Subsurface and structural mapping and detection, 3-D subsurface mapping, archaeology, lateral extent of borehole material, identification of "weak zones", motion monitoring, sinkhole and karst detection, rock quality assessment for tunneling, material extraction and quarrying, borehole analysis, uxo, and landmine detection.
Environment and Pollution
Hazardous plume detection, leaks and seepages from pipes, tanks and reservoirs, pre- and post-construction environmental impact studies, drinking water pollution assessment and quarry rehabilitation.
Construction and Engineering
Subsurface and structural mapping and detection, 3-D subsurface mapping,
Subsurface mapping and analysis for infrastructure planning or foundation design, detection of cavities, location of material inhomogeneities, identification of pipes and lifelines, quality control (rock and concrete quality, fracture density, material continuity, void detection), failure analysis of roads and bridges, mountain road management and rehabilitation.
Water and Geohydrology
Mapping of soil moisture or water content, groundwater detection, identification of transition zones, aquifers and subsurface water channels, drinking water supply assessment, spring and source water quality control, design of protection zones for spring water.
Natural Hazard Assessment & Mitigation
Detecting and mapping of active faults and fault zones, assessing of seismic activity.
Comprehensive hazard assessment and mitigation programs or design of building codes for a region threatened by a specific hazard.
b. Landslides and Rockfalls
Detecting and analyzing salinization process in agriculture fields and reservoirs and producing soil salinity maps (typically in arid and semi-arid zones). Evaluating and optimizing irrigation systems of treated water. Mapping soil layers and erosion degradation.
Post-failure damage assessment and identification of failure triggers for legal purposes, forensics, security and pest-control.
Detection of archeological remains before construction of buildings and infrastructures in order to avoid rescue excavations, optimizing antiquities preservation and digging operations, structure identification, layer separation and concentrations of remains.
