Geophysics in ground investigation – new CIRIA guidance
Join this webinar which will launch our latest publication, 'Good practice guide to using geophysics in ground investigation. A client's guide (C812)'.
Near-surface geophysics represents a range of important and often underused tools that are integral to identifying variability and features in the subsurface, thereby informing targeted and representative ground investigations.
CIRIA’s new report, Good practice guide to using geophysics in ground investigation. A client's guide (C812) is aimed at clients, contractors, consultants, and regulators considering the commission of or receiving a geophysical investigation as part of a ground investigation. It explains to readers where, how, and when to integrate a geophysical investigation into the ground investigation process, highlighting what it can provide and, where possible, any cost–benefits.
Attendees to this webinar will learn about using geophysics in ground investigation first-hand from the publication’s authors including the pros and cons. The webinar will also provide examples of good practice in geophysical investigations across a range of applications and targets including where geophysics has been successfully applied, and where it has not.
All attendees will qualify from a 20% discount off Good practice guide to using geophysics in ground investigation. A client's guide (C812) for a limited period. The promotional code will be communicated with the joining instructions pre-event.
