Involvement in more than 200 projects of geophysical prospecting. The main areas of interest in the development of these projects were the following:

  • Civil engineering: Roads, highways, railways, high-speed railways, tunnels, dams, and pools, channelling, electric sub-stations, power stations, …

  • Geotechnics and construction: Geotechnic knowledge of structures, construction forensics, location of cavities or anomalous areas in foundations,

  • Hydrogeology: Location of lithologies which are potential aquifers, better hydrogeological understanding of different areas, agronomy studies, research in wetlands and reservoirs, definition of marine intrusion, …

  • Mining: Mining exploration, deep geological research for CO2 storage or geothermal energy, surface mining studies (quarry),…

  • Environment and archaeology: Characterization of the mining pools, study of dumping sites, contamination studies, archaeological investigation, …



  • Seismic methods: Refraction, surface wave (MAM, REMI, MASW 1D and 2D,...), downhole, crosshole, seismic tomography, ...

  • Electrical methods: Electrical tomography (ERT) and vertical electrical sounding (VES).

  • Electromagnetic methods: Ground Penetrating Radar GPR, Time-domain Electromagnetic (TDEM), Magnetotelluric and Audio-Magnetotelluric (MT and AMT), light electromagnetic (EM-31 and EM-34),…
