Land and Marine Seismic​

Digital seismic data acquisition using customized software and equipment with a unique ability to perform seismic surveys in shallow marine, transitional land/marine, swamp, marsh, and other environments traditionally inaccessible to seismic survey equipment.​

Near Surface Imaging

We can image the subsurface with an array of non-invasive geophysical survey methods, and are able to work in any environment, detect a wide array of target types and depths, and can supply a number of different data visualization deliverables. We will work with you to design a near-surface geophysical survey for your specific subsurface imaging needs.

Hydrographic Surveys

We offer hydrographic survey services based on single or multi-beam echo sounder surveys. Choose from raw data formats, land survey linework with colorful presentation-level graphics, or DEMs for direct import to your GIS mapping software.​​
