  • Hatfield-2505: Identify geophysical properties of the subsurface

 

 Identify geophysical properties of the subsurface

 

Challenge ID:

HCP-2505

Originator:

Onshore: Hatfield

Title:

Identify geophysical properties of the subsurface.

Theme:

ON 2.5: Surface Geology Mapping - Engineering geological evaluation

Consortium Lead:

Arup

Interviewed Company:

Arup

Geography:

ON.REG.00 - Generic onshore

Challenge Description

What is not possible / not adequately addressed at present?

Identify geophysical properties to inform geological modelling and geotechnical evaluations.

What effect does this challenge have on operations?

Surface geophysical and airborne geophysical are expensive and have health and safety concerns.

Thematic information requirements:

Lithology, structural geology,  surficial geology

What do you currently do to address this challenge? 

How is this challenge conventionally addressed?

Surface and down-hole geophysics, but not always possible due to site / location constraints

What kind of solutions do you envisage could address this challenge?

Spaceborne geophysics to complement airborne and ground based geophysical surveys.

What is your view on the capability of technology to meet this need?

Are you currently using EO tech? If not, why not?

EO can complement ground based and airborne techniques and provide wider geographic coverage at lower cost. High resolution DEMs required for modelling and terrain correction during geophysical processing.
