Bedrock Typography

Infrastructure construction typically involves excavation and rearrangement of large volumes of material. Whether that is soft soil or solid rock is the cost-determining factor in many projects.

The interface between soil and rock has many names: bedrock topography, depth of cover, weathered layer thickness, or regolith thickness. Regarless of what it is called, geological risk in the feasibility and budgeting phase often depends on one’s knowledge of this interface.

The vast majority of geological materials feature a strong geophysical contrast between sediments and bedrock. We thus can track this interface and build a 3D model with quantified precision using our AI-based algorithms.

Extensive pilot tests show that the accuracy of such bedrock topography estimates can be as good as 20 percent (normalized by sediment thickness) depending on the number of available drillings to integrate. For early phase investigations, as little as one borehole per square kilometre is sufficient to provide a regional model.

Working with EMerald Geomodelling gives you benefits such as:

It's easy to get started

Talk to us about your project

All we need to know is where your project is located, its size and particular geological unknowns. Based on that we can assess technological feasibility and economic benefit.

We scan the project area

Once we thoroughly assessed the added value of our method for your goals and received an order, you lean back and we care for data acquisitions, harvesting, integration and machine-learning based model building.

Work with an easy to understand 3D model

Working with EMerald you won’t need domain specialists to make sense of the sensed. We deliver and give easy access to integrated 3D models that provide the insights your project needs.
