The World Below: DAA Acquires ATS International, a Geophysical Services Company

  Whether it’s identifying high yield waters sources, marking hidden archaeological interests, mapping bedrock for a construction site, or detecting underground storage tanks, our newest team can save clients from future headaches. Subsurface voids/structures, 2D bedrock surface maps, time-domain EM, karst studies, slope stability, shear wave testing, seismic surveying: sounds like a list of topics in a college geophysics class. Actually they are! But they’re also services that offer a look underground. In other words, finding out about the world below before moving that first shovelful of dirt.     Being able to obtain physical information on earth and manmade materials without having to take a physical sample (also called non-destructive testing), can allow your project to proceed with confidence.  It reduces uncertainty by eliminating surprises like unknown voids and water sources. It also saves money.  A Penn State study estimated that on average $1 spent on geophysics at the beginning of a project saved...
