Please see the below note from Judy Goplin. This is a great opportunity to learn more about tecnologies used in depth to bedrock investigations.
UW Discovery Farms & Wisconsin Geological and Natural History Survey are presenting Soil Subsurface & Depth to Bedrock Mapping workshops at several locations in April. Could you send this out to any of your lists who might be interested in this type of workshop?
Here is a short intro:
Useful Technologies in Soil Subsurface and Depth to Bedrock Mapping
The Wisconsin Geological and Natural History Survey (WGNHS) and University of Wisconsin Discovery Farms Program are offering a workshop for technical service providers, land and water conservation professionals, and engineers. The workshop will consist of a classroom portion in the morning, and field demonstrations in the afternoon. Staff from the WGNHS will present information on emerging technologies in mapping soil subsurface characteristics and depth to bedrock. The featured technologies are electrical resistivity imaging, ArcMap database management and use of a Geoprobe. Recent improvements in electronics and computing power have made it easier than ever to apply these techniques to real world land use issues.
