Available equipment
Microbiological field laboratory for testing bacteriology, basic chemical parameters, free residual chlorine and turbidity. Equipment for testing bore-holes, shallow wells, water reservoirs, network distributed water.

Field fluorimeters for tracer tests execution.

Tracer tests are routinely performed in surface and groundwater to assess flow velocity, discharge, pollutant transport dynamics, etc.

Flow-through field fluorometers can be used in waters of various origins and chemistry for measuring very small dye concentrations.
Resistivity measurement instrument for Vertical Electric soundings (VES) surveys.

Electrical methods are intensively used for evaluation of deep subsurface.

VES are a simple but powerful method widely used for groundwater prospection in remote areas.

Very Low Frequency (VLF) instrument.

VLF instrument finds structures where useful quantities of underground water may be trapped in rock fractures and cavities.

It also reacts to other of high-conductivity anomalies such as certain orebodies, electrical cables, metallic pipes, buried waste, clay-filled sinkholes and cavities.

Electromagnetic induction sensor EM 38 DLM.

Based on the design principles of inductive electromagnetics, Ground Conductivity Meters provide a non-invasive method for measurement of subsurface conductivity and magnetic susceptibility.

EM 38 is Designed for relatively shallow applications - specifically within the agricultural root zone - the EM38 provides measurement of ground conductivity (quad-phase) and magnetic susceptibility (in-phase) within two effective depth ranges: 1.5 m in the vertical dipole mode; and 0.75 m in the horizontal dipole mode.

The HVSR passive seismic.

The HVSR method measures vertical and two horizontal (north-south and east-west) components of ambient seismic noise, to estimate sediment thickness and depth to bedrock. The technique is especially useful to assess the thickness of aquifers.
