Applying geoscanners for characterizing contamination

Locate contaminated areas and protect groundwater resources

Contamination may occur in all parts of the world and is a problem that is hard to fight. With the different TEMcompany geoscanners, it is possible to map and assess subsurface contamination in soil and groundwater.

These contaminants can include various pollutants such as chemicals, heavy metals, petroleum hydrocarbons, and other hazardous substances released into the environment, often due to industrial activities, accidents, or improper waste disposal. It can help environmental scientists, engineers, and regulators locate and characterize contaminated areas for remediation and environmental management.

Geoscanners such as sTEM and tTEM can be valuable tools for both site characterization and the assessment of contamination remediation efforts. It can help identify contamination sources, define the extent of plumes, track their migration, and assess the effectiveness of remediation measures. By providing non-invasive and cost-effective methods for mapping subsurface contamination, geoscanners can play a crucial role in environmental site assessments and the protection of groundwater resources.
