Geophysical Survey Specialists

Complex Geophysics delivered by Down to Earth people

We know complex geophysical surveys, but we keep things down to earth. With over 30 years of experience, TerraDat is your trusted partner for engineering, environmental, energy, and archaeological ground investigations. We collaborate with engineers and consultants from our Wales HQ (with offices in Scotland, Spain, Italy, and Austria) to deliver actionable subsurface mapping data.

TerraDat understands you need reliable geophysical surveys to make informed project decisions. We tailor our surveys to give you the specific insights necessary for understanding what lies beneath. Our skilled geophysicists utilize cutting-edge technology to maximize your survey’s success, always maintaining a practical, results-focused approach.

Survey results are simple to grasp, delivered in standard CAD or GIS formats, and thoughtfully integrated with historical data and geological information for a comprehensive view. Our mission is to help you achieve your goals – even if you’re new to geophysics, contact us for a friendly chat to pinpoint your survey needs.

We’re passionate about the earth sciences, easy to work with, and always ready to help!

GeoVoyager: A Collaboration with the Royal Society and Cowbridge School

By |February 1st, 2024|Categories: Uncategorized|

We’re pleased to announce a partnership with Cowbridge School for an innovative educational project called GeoVoyager. The collaboration is made possible thanks to a STEM Partnership Grant from The Royal Society, the oldest scientific institution in continuous existence since 1660. GeoVoyager represents a collaborative effort to create an online 3D geological database harnessing our expertise in photogrammetry and laser scanning technologies. Our goal is to provide the A-level Geology students of Cowbridge School with a dynamic and interactive educational experience. This will be achieved through [...]

How can geophysical techniques be used to investigate and monitor leaking dams?

By |January 19th, 2021|Categories: News|

Dams are vital structures that contribute to vital infrastructure including drinking water, crop irrigation, and hydroelectric power. These structures, often over a century old are also put under huge stress by the large quantities of water they retain as well as significant environmental events. Hence monitoring dams and ensuring their safety is vital. Deformation of dams can occur because of erosion, hydraulic gradients, water load, and water saturation. That can put dams at risk of failure, possibly flooding homes, businesses, and farmland, and putting lives [...]
