Annoucement December 13th 2021. A New Airborne Geophysical Survey for Southwest England Begins This Week.
Press Release / Julianne Sharples / 2021
Bell Geospace, an Edinburgh-based airborne geophysical surveying company, is commencing operations this week in the Southwest of the England. The survey will take two to three weeks and involve a plane flying in straight lines at an average height of 200 meters to collect geophysical information on the properties of rocks below the ground. The information being collected creates geological maps. These maps may be used for planning geothermal resources in the area or by domestic mining companies tasked with future-proofing the supply of critical minerals needed to build net-zero economies. The airborne survey involves measuring minor variations in the Earth’s gravitational field. Sensitive measuring equipment located in the aircraft will be used to gather this data. It is a totally passive technique which does not involve sending out any signals or sound waves. Bell Geospace is one of the only two contractors in the world that can do this type of survey. They have been in the geophysical surveying business for over twenty-five years, have an unblemished safety record and an experienced field and office crew. Flights will take place early morning, with take-off at around 6am. Flights typically last between four and five hours. Livestock owners and parishes in the area are being contacted by mail and social media. it is possible for residents and any interested parties to find out more about the survey at or by calling the Bell Geospace community helpline, 0131 202 7144.

Constraining basinal elements in the Lotikipi Basin, NW Kenya, from Ternary Imaging of Full Tensor Gravity Gradiometry data.
Abstract / Colm Murphy, Richard Farnell, Chris Bellamy / 2021
This paper in the EAGE 2021 workshop of Integrated Applications of Non-seismic Geophysics (gravity, magnetics and electromagnetics), describes a geological interpretation from the Ternary Imaging of the FTG data and, when integrated with the magnetic and available seismic, fast-tracks a decision-making process for further work in the Lotikipi basin.

A Propensity to Talk Density: Minerals and Gravity Gradiometry – The Whole World in Your Hands
Video, Podcast / Gaud Pouliquen, Tim Wright, Tyler Kern / 2021
Gravity and density are both critical to mineral explorers. The art of measuring variations in it with full tensor gravity gradiometry (FTG) , is of key importance to the oil and gas and mining industries. To glean some expert insights, A Propensity to Talk Density host Tyler Kern spoke with experts Dr. Tim Wright, Director and Principal Geoscientist at Scorpion Geoscience Ltd, and Gaud Pouliquen, Business Development Manager EAMEAA at Bell Geospace
