- Advanced search of objects with metal detector and georadar.
International studies and works with georadar
We are a multilingual team, each of us speaks 5 languages.
This allows us to carry out work abroad, where language can be a barrier when conducting research with georadar.
We have experience in international work.
Important factors when choosing which type of subsurface study we want:
1)Study of georadar vs traditional soil mechanics.
To get the same results from a georadar study of an area of 9 by 10 meters, we must make 120 holes with the floor mechanics drill.
This greatly increases the operational cost.
As an example we can put, that the chances of finding a cavity of 10 m3 using 15 tastings with traditional soil mechanics on a plot of 0.5 hectares is 3%.
If we look for the same cavity on a plot of 5 hectares with 85 soil mechanics tastings the odds fall to 1.7% to be able to find it.
The environmental impact of soil mechanics is a very important factor to consider when we are in areas where flora and fauna are protected.
On the contrary, georadar has no impact on the environment and is the best way to protect flora and fauna.
Advantages of georadar:
Economically it is much more profitable in monetary terms, as well as for the time spent performing the georadar study for a given surface if compared to the traditional Floor Mechanics with Drill. It is ecologically friendly as it is not necessary to crumble or remove material from the soil through which the georadar is passed since you only need to pass a small antenna over the surface. This is very important in several regions of Mexico where nature abounds and the species that inhabit these places are protected by the laws of flora and wildlife. It is very versatile in places where there are archaeological sites since to carry out the study you do not need to remove any material from the area, this is a very important point also in Mexico since archaeological, historical and artistic attractions abound.
2)Study of Georadar versus Electrical Resistivity.
The application of the ERI Method is an appropriate way to conduct an investigation of structures below the surface with large differences in electrical resistivity.
Ex: between limestone and organic materials.
But not between limestone, cavities, vaults, caves, caverns and Cenotes.
Because they have the same electrical resistivity and it is impossible to distinguish between the two, therefore it is a method that does not serve to detect cavities, vaults, caves, caverns and / or Cenotes in the subsoil.
The georadar if it detects these cavities, vaults, caves, caves and Cenotes since they have different Relative Dilectic Permitivity, which is very important in areas where the subsoil is of cartic origin as is the case of Yucátan, Quintan Roo in the Riviera Maya, Tulum, Mexico.
Advantages of Georadar:
The georadar study is the most efficient way to develop a study of the subsoil, but even in a land of Carstico origin such as the Yucátan peninsula where dolins, cenotes and cavities abound. The georadar gives us a greater amount of data that is impossible to obtain with electrical resisiivity studies.
