Geophysical survey

ZER Geosystem Perú

Field exploration by geophysical seismic soundings in the area where buildings near Chinchero International Airport and the Cantera Rachi would be located.

The geophysical evaluation consisted in conducting field exploration by Multichannel Analysis of Surface Waves (MASW) and Microtremor Array Measurement (MAM) test through which the power of the strata was determined with the interpreting S waves speeds of materials forming the ground.

The geophysical exploration was carried out in order to determine the propagation velocity of S waves (Vs) on the survey area by using MASW and MAM methods. Profiles of S waves values ​​were obtained letting determine the thickness of the layers in the area where buildings will be located in Chinchero International Airport.
