The Geonics EM31-MK2 uses an electromagnetic inductive technique to allow measurement in most geologic conditions including those of high surface resistivity such as sand, gravel, and asphalt. The effective depth of exploration is 6 meters, making the EM31 MK2 ideal for geotechnical and environmental site characterization. Advantages of employing this instrument over other conventional resistivity methods include the speed at which surveys can be performed, its precision in identifying small changes in conductivity, and its ability to continuously collect data while traversing the survey area.
The instrument rental includes the option of either the Mesa3 or the Archer2 data logger. Available accessories include the Juniper Systems Geode external sub-meter GPS.
