Application Spotlight: Denver CO uses magnetic resonance to manage aquifer storage and recovery (ASR)

Application Spotlight: Denver CO uses magnetic resonance to manage aquifer storage and recovery (ASR)

Magnetic resonance (NMR) logging is well suited for helping manage aquifer storage and recovery (ASR) projects. An excellent example is this project in Denver Colorado, in which they used Vista Clara NMR borehole logging tools to characterize the Denver basin aquifer properties, especially hydraulic conductivity, for potential aquifer storage and […]

Benefits of Magnetic Resonance (NMR) compared to Electrical Resistivity in Brackish and Saline Groundwater Investigations

Benefits of Magnetic Resonance (NMR) compared to Electrical Resistivity in Brackish and Saline Groundwater Investigations

Geophysical NMR measurements deliver reliable and straightforward hydrogeologic information, even in saline groundwater environments. These environments can be challenging to characterize with conventional electrical resistivity measurements, because differences in resistivity may be associated with the fluid or with the formation. Low resistivity could be correlated with a impermeable clay, or […]

NMR Can Measure Groundwater Directly – Even in Permafrost Environments

NMR Can Measure Groundwater Directly – Even in Permafrost Environments

In permafrost landscapes, the ground remains mostly frozen throughout the year and liquid groundwater only occurs in certain locations or during anomalously warm periods. Understanding the spatial and temporal distribution of groundwater in these environments is extremely important as it can affect processes ranging from geotechnical soil stability to the […]
