EM instruments are commonly used during environmental investigations to measure ground conductivity. Inorganic contaminants introduced into the subsurface through human activity can dramatically effect ground conductivity. Thus EM surveys are excellent tools for mapping the lateral extent of inorganic impacts.

EM31 and EM38

The EM31 and EM38 are the most commonly used instruments and provide conductivity information to respective depths of 5.5 m and 1.5 m. The EM34 is designed to achieve a greater penetration depth so that readings down to 60 m are possible. The EM61 is an excellent tool for locating buried metal debris.

Phase II ESA's

EM surveys are widely used by oil/gas facilities to complement regulatory Environmental Site Assessments. The extent of environmental impacts can be determined in a non-intrusive manner and reduce the number of soil sampling points required. In many cases, surveys are carried out over regular intervals to track changes with time.

See Example

Buried Pits and Sumps

A common application of EM surveys is to locate subsurface contamination related to drilling sumps and flare pits. Inorganic contaminants generate an appreciable anamolous EM response.

Pipeline Rupture

An EM survey is typically one of the first tools used to delineate the subsurface extent of fluid release related to a pipeline break. The rapid turn-around of the data allows for a more efficient and complete clean-up.
