geological site characterization

Site characterization encompasses various activities to collect high-quality, robust, and defensible geoscientific data from a site.

Drilling for to complete site characterization

Site characterization is a generic term that encompasses a wide variety of activities to collect geoscientific data at a site. These activities typically include:

  • Drilling
  • Sampling (soil, rock, water)
  • chemical and physical testing of samples
  • Instrumentation of deep boreholes to establish geoscientific properties of sites

The complexity of anticipated site conditions and the acquired site data’s end-use are always considered when designing our site characterization programs. These considerations ensure the appropriate balance between the best value for money and the highest quality and defensible data.
