Ground Penetrating Radar

Wednesday, March 18th, 2009

The Project team want to say a very big thanks to Geomatrix and to their owner Chris Leech.
The company (Geomatrix Earth Science Ltd) offers one of the largest hire pools of near surface geophysical instrumentation in Europe. They are exclusive sales representatives for many of the leading geophysical instrument and software manufacturers. Their instruments are world renowned for their emphasis on providing high data quality and instrument reliability in the most arduous of field conditions (which now includes former battlefields).
Geomatrix are loaning us GPR (Ground Penetrating Radar) equipment to help us survey the British line, and to have a look at Jon’s German position, that we started to excavate last year.
We welcome Geomatrix as the first Corporate Sponsor of the Plugstreet Project and welcome their contribution to our on-going research into both the battlefield itself and into the use of geophysics on this sort of site.
We hope to be able to post results of the survey soon, so you can see their amazing kit in action.
