General description

Overview of Challenge

5

What is the nature of the challenge? (What is not adequately addressed at present?)

We need to identify soft ground to avoid seismic vehicles getting stuck

6

Thematic information requirements

1. Obtain detailed topographic information, 2. Obtain detailed terrain characterisation,

7

Nature of the challenge - What effect does this challenge have on operations?

Soft ground not only reduces the accuracy of our seismic output, but also delays operations by slowing the vehicles.

8

What do you currently do to address this challenge?/ How is this challenge conventionally addressed?

Online imagery, ground survey teams

9

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

As well as information relating to terrain characterisation, analysing topographical data can also be useful since soft ground normally occurs in surface depressions.

10

What is your view on the capability of technology to meet this need? – are you currently using EO tech? If not, why not?
