General Quality Guidelines
Client decides (in according to the contract) in which way a geophysical report should be done. It can be a great difference in report extent depending on a type of geophysical survey and its size. Geophysical report contains usually the following parts:
  • Table of Contents
  • Appendix
Objectives of the survey
Former investigations
  • Reports, List of maps etc.
Geological overview
  • E.g., geological situation, borehole profiles
Field investigations
  • Site and measurement location
  • Field and weather conditions
  • Time table of activities
  • Incidents
Geophysical processing
  • Data acquisition parameter
  • Copy of raw data (if necessary)
  • Quality of raw data (reproducing; precision; resolution)
  • Processing software
  • Processing steps
  • Qualitative results: e.g. electrics: resistivity profiles or sections (2-D or 3-D), resistivity maps, transversal resistance-, longitudinal conductance maps
  • Quantitative results: time-depth sections (reflection seismic), interpretative sections or maps
Interpretation in terms of geology (if required)
  • Reliability of results
  • Recommendations
  • Unresolved problems
