Testing and Monitoring

SOILTEST operates also for testing and monitoring in risk situations, preventive and post-intervention. Here are some of our interventions:

  • monitoring evolution of landslides using inclinometers, straingauges and laser scanner technology;
  • detection and remote sensing, draft geological and geomorphological map and issues for mitigation of geological hazards and proper land management;
  • monitoring coastal erosion through geographic information systems;
  • acquisition and processing of hydrographic and hydrological data (flow measurements, climatic curves);
  • hydrogeological characterization and classification of aquifers through piezometric measurements and detection the direction of groundwater flow and possible pollutants also using geophysical techniques, measurements of permeability, water balances;
  • geochemical characterization of waters to detect their composition, quality, and the presence of pollutants;
  • investigations buildings to verify the existence of crack hidden in reinforced concrete or masonry by the technique of ultrasound.
