Environment safety is one of the major concern for any developing country like India while maintaining the sustainable growth of infrastructure. In view of the increasing environmental legislations and poorly maintained historical records characterization and mapping of active and abandoned landfills and solid waste sites is becoming crucial day by day. Geophysics is an efficient tool used for contamination mapping, site selection for solid waste management and landfill characterization.
Using Geophysical Investigations important detailed information on sub-soil stratigraphy, shear zones, ground water table etc. can be obtained which are very useful for planning of these waste disposal sites.
ORIZON uses a number of Geophysical Techniques for Environmental Hazard & Waste Management Studies:
