Multi-channel Analysis of Surface Waves
Multi-channel Analysis of Surface Waves (MASW) is an investigation technique that uses generated energy (such as a sledgehammer blow) and measures how it travels through the ground.
Click below to learn more about the science behind it all.
A series of sensors, called geophones, are placed in a line to take measurements that will then provide the shear-wave (Vs) profile in either 1D (depth) or 2D (depth and surface distance)
People possibly relate ‘energy through ground’ situations mostly with earthquakes, but using MASW can be useful in providing a range of solutions:
