Activities

Land and sea surveys

Surveys are considered the superficial exploration , without terrain removal, aimed to the study, research or exam of data of any element or archeological or paleontological item. The survey must be consider as a preliminary phase of documentation.

As a difference with the land survey, where the archaeologyst plays a central role, the underwater survey must be well supported by technical equipment due to the fact that is done in a hostile environment for humans.

Following this double line of action ( land and sea ) , our Company has the necessary technical resources:

  • Boats and platforms.
  • Air and water driven suction pumps.
  • Scuba and Surface Supply diving systems.
  • Stratigraphic marine survey equipment (sub-bottom profiler and multiparametric probe).
  • Superficial survey marine equipment (side scan sonar, hydrographic echo sounders).
  • Magnetometers and metal detectors.
  • Photography and video equipment.
  • Topography equipment (RTK, Total Station)
  • Underwater scooters (to facilitate work in extensive areas).
