How did it all start?

TEMcompany was founded by Professor Esben Auken and his research staff. It started with a dream to build next generation imaging solutions for solving today’s water problems. This goal grew from my experiences as a researcher in the Hydrogeophysics Group at Aarhus University, where we had worked with geophysical imaging systems for more than 30 years. Over this time, we’d become deeply frustrated with commercially available instruments
