Geology and Geophysics

Knowledge of the structure and properties of the subsurface is important for many offshore activities, like sand extraction, wind turbine foundation design, cable trajectories and alternative energy solutions.

Deltares develops and applies a range of measurement methods and software to explore the subsurface. We lead the quest for innovative solutions for a wide range of subsurface challenges facing society. Our specialist advice is grounded firmly in state-of-theart field measurements, equipment and methods, laboratory tests and computer models and covers the following subjects:

Identification of potential geological hazards, in-situ characterisation of the subsurface (2D and 3D), in situ analysis of geological sequence and of geotechnical properties, characterisation of the subsurface based on existing geophysical data and quantification and constraining of geological hazards.
