For our monthly insights digest
Geological information describes data on how we gather and observe the earth. This information includes seismic data, velocity, magnetic, surface, and other geological or geophysical data concerning materials like bedrock, ores, soil types, and water quality.
In various ways, geological information about the earth’s system and data associated with a geographic location is crucial to effectively manage several of the challenges involved in promoting sustainable development.
Non-Destructive Analytical Tools
With the increased use of high-resolution and non-destructive core analysis systems, a suite of geophysical measurements can now be obtained rapidly, accurately, and automatically on sediment or rock cores for analysis purposes.
The cores are generally very expensive to acquire and provide necessary insights such as porosity and permeability characteristics that are key for applications like the management of radioactive waste, geoscience research including mineral exploration and limnology, geotechnical, and geohazard studies.
With multi-sensor core logger systems and X-ray instruments, researchers are now able to perform high-resolution, non-destructive analyses of geological cores. Such analysis can benefit a range of different geoscience research areas.
Versatile and Customizable
For field-based utilization, the equipment can be directly fitted into the customizable mobile container laboratories, which provide a versatile means of deploying equipment, whether for use at sea, in remote field locations, or even as a shore-based temporary outbuilding.
An example of these containers is those from Geotek Limited. The rugged nature of the equipment makes it suitable for use in either an onshore laboratory, repository environment, or onboard survey and drilling vessels. These containers are designed and built from the floor up to enable full Container Safety Convention certification and can be shipped as a “shipper’s own container” to their destinations. For users loading them onto a vessel or platform offshore, they can also be Det Norske Veritas-certified.
By partnering with Geotek Limited, DKSH has a range of non-destructive core analysis instruments and services for the Malaysian market. This includes the mobilization of containerized laboratories with instruments involving radioactive and gamma sources.
