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 60m above the ground
3. Gamma-ray spectrometry
- The electromagnetic signal is transmitted from the right hand side pod and signal received in the left
- Following data quality checking, the data is made into maps and geological interpretation undertaken
