Electromagnetic Geonics EM-31SH

Geonics EM-31 SH (Short) Ground Conductivity Meter

Item # 101010

The EM31-SH is a "short" version of the EM31- providing an effective depth of exploration of about four metres. With a smaller coil separation (2 m) and lighter weight, the EM31-SH offers improvements in sensitivity to smaller near-surface targets, lateral resolution and portability, while maintaining the high levels of accuracy and stability provided by the standard EM31.

The EM31 maps geologic variations, groundwater contaminants, or any subsurface feature associated with changes in ground conductivity. Using a patented electromagnetic inductive technique that allows measurements without electrodes or ground contact. With this inductive method, surveys can be carried out under most geologic conditions including those of high surface resistivity such as sand, gravel, and asphalt.

Ground conductivity (quad-phase) and magnetic susceptibility (in-phase) measurements are read directly from digital displays or logged into a hand-held computer.

The EM31 is ideal for geotechnical and environmental site characterization. Important advantages of the EM31 over conventional resistivity methods are the speed with which surveys can be performed, the precision with which small changes in conductivity can be measured and the continuous readout and data collection while traversing the survey area. Additionally, the in-phase component is particularly useful for the detection of buried metallic structure and waste material.
