Multi-vector Studies for Ground Water Exploration

Pritam, Senior Geologist of Geovale Services on the left, discusses the hydrogeological controls of the client’s target area. He is in-charge of hydrogeological investigations, which aims at finding water sources and sustainable utilisation of ground and surface water for beneficiation of iron ore. Pritam’s team uses extensive and detailed time series remote sensing studies, gradient profiling (resistivity) and vertical electrical sounding (resistivity), downhole resistivity survey, ground magnetic survey, geological – structural mapping, extensive hydrocensus and pump tests on the known aquifers to explore, find and characterise the aquifers. The team further intends to carry out mathematical modeling of the aquifer, before determining the safe limit of aquifer pumping and designing the aquifer recharge parameters¬†
