ERT in the hills of the Highlands

We were lucky to catch a break in the clouds while conducting and ERT survey in the hills on the Highlands. The scenery was a well-deserved reward after a backpacking trip to the site.

Sinkholes and infrastructure in BBC News

This a story from BBC News about a 20m deep sinkhole that appeared on A26 in Kent. Luckily nobody has been hurt. This is just an example how useful geophysical technics can be for infrastructure inspections. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-sussex-44287018
