Read the latest stories about EMerald Geomodelling and how we uncover ground conditions in large scale infrastructure projects.
For the first time ever, the rock conditions of the challenging Himalayas were mapped with the use of helicopter geoscanning and exploratory drilling follow-up. This pioneering work, done in 2013, made it possible to analyse the ground conditions in practically inaccessible areas.
For all big road and tunnel projects, knowledge of the ground conditions can be what makes or breaks it. Therefore, a thorough drilling campaign is required to get the necessary information before the construction work starts… Or at least, that's been true in the past.
Through innovative thinking, the team at EMerald Geomodelling has demonstrated that it’s possible to do large-scale mapping of quick clay occurrences by combining airborne geophysics, geotechnical investigations, and machine learning. A scientific study demonstrating this integrated approach has now been published in Near Surface Geophysics.
Early in 2021, Magnus Rømoen joined the board at EMerald Geomodelling, bringing more than 15 years of knowledge and expertise to the team.
By using EMerald Geomodelling's geoscanning surveys and machine learning algorithms on a road construction project near Trondheim, Norway, Nye Veier saved one year of geotechnical investigations and averted road construction costs equivalent to 250 million NOK.
The Indian government is currently working on strategic road tunnel projects to ensure safe travel between central India and the Kashmir region. To get information about the complex geology and overcome the challenges of conducting ground investigations at more than 5000 m altitude, EMerald Geomodelling is on site in Jammu, Kashmir and Himachal Pradesh, India – flying in the face of Covid.
With first-hand experience in all phases of the technology development pipeline, Le Breton is ready to help EMerald Geomodelling to develop what he calls "new superpowers for geoengineers" that will disrupt the construction and infrastructure industries.
When you apply for a summer internship, there is often a risk you´ll be set to do tasks no one else wants to do. What if you got the opportunity to make and try new machine learning algorithms? The bonus ofcourse is to be included in a small, but dynamic group that goes that extra mile.
EMerald Geomodelling in partnership with SkyTEM, SDU and NGI has secured Eurostars funding for a € 1.6 M development project. The funding will help finance the development of a drone-based system and piloting with strategic partners over the next 30 months.
What do you get when you combine a passion for the environment with a fascination for meteorology?
EAGE is a global professional, not-for-profit association for geoscientists and engineers. This summer our CEO Andi Pfaffhuber was asked to share his career journey in EAGE's Career Masterclasses. This is his story.
