SPECIALISED SOLUTIONS FOR GEOPHYSICAL INVESTIGATIONS
GEOPHYSICAL CONSULTING AND SPECIAL PROJECTS
MALA GPR Australia’s Special Projects division offers specialised geophysical consultancy services worldwide.
Whilst our main focus is on the implementation and application of the Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) technology, we have 15 years experience with a wide array of geophysical methods and offer a consultancy service for high level projects that require a specialist input.
With many years experience over a range of Australian and international projects, our qualified geophysicists provide full data collection, processing and reporting services and can employ a range of geophysical methods including Electromagnetic (EM / IP), Ground Magnetics and Ground Conductivity. MALA GPR Australia specialises in providing innovative and effective geophysical solutions across a diverse range of problems.

The Environment and its well being has always been a sensitive issue. Whether the area for investigation is currently contaminated or up for investigation, non destructive geophysical techniques offer a safe, efficient and straight forward approach to determine what is happening within the subsurface.
heritage & ARCHAEOLOGY
3D GPR Mapping is useful for applications such as archaeological and heritage investigations. Similarly to cemetery investigations, specific care needs to be taken with the survey approach to minimise community and individual concern and to instil confidence about the project.
One of the main modern applications for Ground Penetrating Radar is that of underground service and utility location (pipe and cable). Such investigations for service location may range from single service locations for residential properties to complete site characterisations for large commercial and industrial sites.
GPR typically is used for above ground applications and generally is not believed to work well in wet conditions. This is typically correct as water can increase host material conductivity and in turn reduce GPR resolution, depth penetration and therefore any success. Saline sea water is definitely a material to avoid with GPR due to the high conductivity. However, GPR can be used in specific freshwater applications, most notably freshwater lake bed profiling.
