Exploration and Survey Design

Computational Geosciences offers a complete solution for geophysical exploration and survey design. CGI performs 3D computer simulations to ensure that the geophysical survey will provide the desired results (such as depth and spacial resolution) before proceeding with expensive data acquisition.

CGI works closely with geophysical service providers and exploration companies to ensure you get the highest quality data. The geophysical survey design can also be tailored to optimize efficiency in the data aquisition process and minimize exploration costs. 

The Benefits
  • Select the best suite of geophysical methods, optimally define the target and determine the survey parameters such as transmitter / receiver locations and operating frequencies
  • Optimize survey desgin given a specific budget and a cost model for each project
  • Validate the performance of the survey design using 3D computer simulations on our suite of geological models
