Geophysical survey

Conduct field exploration by geophysical soundings using seismic and electrical methods, as part of the project: "Geophysical Research Palo Redondo dam - Stage III Chavimochic Special Project ".

The geophysical evaluation was performed by ground exploration using seismic refraction testing and electrical tomography testing, whereby the power of the layers was determined following the interpretation of P wave (Vp) velocities and the resistivity values respectively.

Further tests following Multichannel Analysis of Surface Waves (MASW) methods and Microtremor Array Measurement (MAM) were performed to obtain a velocity profile of S waves (Vs), the same that allow to properly calibrate seismic refraction lines executed. These tests allow to analyze dynamic and electrical subsurface properties getting seismic profiles as well as electrical bidemiensional profiles.

Seismic geophysical exploration was carried out in order to determine the propagation velocity of Vp and the propagation velocity of the Vs of the study area, by testing surface seismic refraction by measuring Vp and MAM and MASW tests for profiles Vs waves, values ​​that will let determine the thicknesses of the layers in the area and the dynamic soil parameters.
