The Department conducts activities concerned with:
● geophysical methods applied to archaeology (geo-electric, magnetic and electromagnetic) ;
● integration of physical and geophysical methods for non-destructive analysis of archaeological sites and historical monuments;
in collaboration with the Department of hydrogeology and engineering geophysics the Faculty of Geology of the University of Warsaw
● integrated geophysical studies for geological, geotechnical, hydrogeological and environmental issues;
● acquisition and processing of seismic reflection and electro tomography data for archaeological purposes as well as for physical and mechanical characterization of materials;
● geophysical methods applied to non-invasive diagnosis of reinforced concrete structures;
● landslide study;
We conduct also studies related to airborne photography by means of drones, satellites or planes, Airborne Laser Scanning(ALS)and Light Detection and Ranging (LiDAR)with the purpose to take aerial prospection to another level by converting photographs into precise 3D terrain-mapping models with horizontal and vertical resolutions.
