SkyTEM mapping water in California

SkyTEM contract USGS

SkyTEM has been  awarded a competitive USGS contract for an airborne magnetic and electromagnetic geophysical survey at the Fort Irwin National Training Center (NTC) in California. The purpose of the survey is to map the complex geological framework, lithologic variations and structural controls (faults and folds) on groundwater within a series of basins within portions of the (NTC).

The data will be used for numerical inversion to determine the 3D extent of structural geologic features as well as to constrain models of the geologic and tectonic evolution of the region. The results will be used to create a geological framework to be input into groundwater flow models.
