Underground Water Survey

Geoliss’s mission is to significantly contribute towards achieving universal and sustainable access to clean drinking water.

Exploring for groundwater (hydrogeophysics) is similar to exploring for any other resource uses geological evidence along with geophysically-based measurements to help define perspective zones for exploitation. 

   

We Offer Service:

  • geophysical investigation for underground potable water and thermal water. 
Proper well placement  is key to obtaining good well yield, minimizing well interference, and water quality impacts. 

Impermeable igneous and metamorphic rocks may yield water in wells if the rocks are sufficiently fractured.


Who We Serve:  

  • Rural homeowners
  • Farmers/Ranchers/
  • Well drillers
  • Community water systems
  • Mineral Explorers
  • Irrigation Engineers
  • Recreational property owners
  • Developers

WE  WORK WITH UNIQUE TECHNOLOGY WHICH CONSISTS OF:
  • Biogeophysical method (BGF) or radon gas monitor;
  • Resonance-acoustic profiling (RAP);
The RAP - a breakthrough geophysical method for imaging underground structuries. Based on a discovery of a certain in-ground acoustic phenomena, the ever-present natural and man-made vibrations can be used to get subsurface information. The system provides high-resolution geomechanical cross-section to depth of up to 5,000 feet. This technology protected by USA patent №6 199 016 B1;
  • Transient electromagnetic method (TEM). 

 "A combination of dowsing and modern techniques can be both more successful, and far less expensive, than we had thought." - said Hans-Dieter Betz, a physicist at the University of Munich

This technology works so well in any geological settings, giving 95% positive result in water-well drilling even in rocky regions and human settlement.  Achievement of a great result, using conventional geophysical methods, is so difficult, sometimes impossible, task in these places.

Why? Because only conventional geophysical methods are:
  • very sensitive to different obstacles;
  • they need big expense of labour and time, although precision of located points for water-well drilling is quite approximately.
This unique technology is especially effective in water survey:
  • In complicated geological settings of rocky regions;
  • In human settlement under different anthropogenic obstacles.

Main elements of technology are the following:
1) BGF  (radon gas monitor) method can reveal faults and their intersections (nodes) so fast, which are the most appropriate  places for water accumulation; 
2) A short profile of RAP goes perpendicularly to the fault strike on this local area. Thereafter, we obtain  geomechanical sections and  analyzing them. Depth of study is about 1 km!; 
3) Best fractured zones we check by Transient electromagnetic method.  10-15 measurement instead of 100-1000 in traditional way of survey! Depth of study is about 0.7 km!  Note: exist the opportunity to increase the depth of study.
Eventually, we are sure where a drill machine should stay.

So, this technology is very efficient and economical.

We guarantee to determine in the shortest time  where operational wells should be deployed. Thus it reduces total cost of work very much.

This technology has been used in various locations around the world including North America, Africa, Italy, Bulgaria and Asia (Tajikistan).

About ground water

Ground water is the water that accumulates fractured zones and other openings in rocks.

Ground water does not normally occur in underground rivers or lakes. Ground water is found in bedrocks, limestone and sands able to retain the water—like a sponge holds water.

Underground water is used in many industrial and private ways and finding new sources of fresh water are important for people living on the Earth. Especially nowadays, when the ordinary water sources (lakes, rivers) are heavily polluted. 

The misconceptions are not surprising because some children’s books about water either do not mention groundwater or mistakenly indicate that it exists in lakes and rivers under the ground. Our mistaken ideas about groundwater start at an early age, and it becomes difficult to dispel these ideas.

In the flat part of the Russian Federation, some geologic units serve as aquifers over hundreds of square miles. In rocky regions, the permeability of the rocks and sediments changes over short distances. As a result, most aquifers in rocky regions are local (subvertical). A particular rock layer may serve as an aquifer in one location but not in another.

Since most groundwater in bedrock flows through fractures and openings, locating a well where rocks have a high density of fractures may result in a higher yield.
