Graves and Archaeological

Alpha Geoscience have a reputation for locating graves where others have failed, even in clay soils known to be hostile to Ground Penetrating Radar.

Investigations of graves and archaeological sites are most often conducted using Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR). Buried objects such as coffins or building structures may be readily detected using GPR in many cases where soil conditions are favorable. A combination of techniques including GPR, Total Field Magnetics and EM/Conductivity can often improve results and aid interpretation of data.

Trench edges or burial mounds are often identifiable even in very old graves and archaeological sites. The surrounding soil will be undisturbed and formed in layers, whereas the grave or trench will be disturbed soil often with sharp edges on either side.
