Airborne Survey technical specifications

​The airborne low-level geophysical survey, comprises of measurements of magnetic field, radiometric and electrical conductivity of the Earth’s near surface. The geophysical data is a valuable tool for improving geological maps, assessing peat resources, understanding environmental radioactivity and promoting mineral exploration as well as other areas of research and planning.

1. Production flying

  • Magnetic, electromagnetic and gamma-ray spectrometry data are collected by the aircraft as it flies 60 m above the ground

 2. Magnetics

  • The magnetic data is collected from the tail stinger



 3. Gamma-ray spectrometry

  • The gamma ray detector sits in the back of the aircraft



 4. Electromagnetic

  • The electromagnetic signal is transmitted from the right hand side pod and signal received in the left



5. Interpretation

  • Following data quality checking, the data is made into maps and geological interpretation undertaken
