Meet Bison “Thumper” – our seismic weight drop…

2020-02-12T09:22:13+00:00

TerraDat's expertise in shallow seismic surveying to profile bedrock and map changes in subsurface engineering properties goes to another level with the recent acquisition of a powerful weight drop source. As far as we know, it's the only one of its kind in the UK and has significant benefits over other seismic sources, not least it's power and portability. We acquired the equipment in 2017 and it has undergone extensive refurbishment at our HQ in South Wales. The US-manufactured Bison [...]

Twenty years ago, geophysics specialists at TerraDat became involved in a major pan-European project to measure the impact of climate change on permafrost in the mountains of Europe. The PACE (Permafrost And Climate in Europe) Project began monitoring a large area of permafrost between Svalbard in the north and the Sierra Nevada mountains in Spain in the south.   The study, [...]

How we brought the evocative story of Swansea’s copper heritage to life using 3D Reality Capture

2019-10-10T10:15:31+00:00

An evocative video combining the oral history of one of Wales’ most important industrial sites with a 3D digital model created from laser scan surveys are preserving its heritage for future generations as well as connecting local communities with their past. TerraDat worked in partnership with Swansea University to produce the video, “Echoes of Copperopolis”, and a 3D digital model of the Hafod-Morfa Copperworks, which was once the crucible of the world’s copper industry. It was hugely important in the [...]
