Discovering the Earth from Core to Surface

Core to Surface Geophysics is a company founded in 2016 that specializes in providing geophysical services such as Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR), Seismic Tomography, Reflection and Refraction Seismic, Multi-Channel Analysis of Surface Weaves (MASW), Magnetometry and Electric Resistivity Surveys to help our clients make informed decisions by providing accurate and reliable subsurface data.


Services such as Seismic Planning and Supervision, Well Permitting and Database Management provide our clients the necessary insight to implement excellent project management solutions and minimize the overall expenses of the operations.


We use the latest technology and industry best practices to acquire, process and interpret geophysical data. Our team of experienced geophysicists, geologists and project managers work together to provide comprehensive solutions for exploration, development, and production projects.


At C2S Geophysics, our commitment is to deliver the utmost quality of services and expertise, all underpinned by a thriving busness model.

Geophysical methods in civil engineering provide valuable information about the subsurface structures and properties, which are used to improve design and construction, reduce risks, and optimize project costs. 


Construction planning and excavation

– detect buried objects, such as utilities, pipes, and rebar

– detect subsurface anomalies, such as sinkholes or underground voids

– detect and map subsurface magnetic anomalies, such as buried metal objects, UXOs or geological structures

– detect buried infrastructure, such as pipelines and tanks, which aid field operations management and minimize the risk of accidents


Engineering design and foundation 

– compressional and shear wave subsurface velocity profile
– VS30 calculation to classify soil types for earthquake engineering
– depth and properties of subsurface layers
– slope and embarkment stability analysis
– subsurface structure mapping and hazard identification: faults, folds, geological model
– 3D images of the subsurface structure
– detect and map subsurface material features, properties and dimensions


Infrastructure assessment and monitoring

– concrete structure evaluation: crack detection, void mapping, structural defect identification for bridges, buildings, tunnels

– concrete and asphalt pavements thickness assessment to determine the state of roads, runways, and highways

Geophysical methods can be used for a wide range of environmental applications, such as groundwater exploration, contaminant mapping, and landfill characterization.

Groundwater exploration
– non-invasive investigation of the 3D subsurface properties of soils, sediments, and rocks to characterize potential groundwater reservoirs;
– geophysical mapping of the bedrock, fractures, and other subsurface structures that may affect groundwater flow
– assess soil stability to evaluate landslide risk and contamination paths of groundwater
– investigating the subsurface electrical properties of soils and rocks, to identify groundwater resources

Contaminant mapping
– identify and map surface and subsurface pollutants and their spatial distribution
– identify the presence of subsurface features such as buried objects, voids, and fractures to determine pollutant sources and travel pathways
– identify the presence of buried materials that can cause potential hazards

Geohazard identification and risk assessment
– determine the P and S wave velocity profiles of the subsurface, to assess the seismic hazard and terrain stability
– evaluate and model the underground geological features to evaluate slope stability, terrain stiffness, seismic hazard and landslide risks

Geophysical techniques serve as potent means for the non-invasive detection and examination of archaeological sites. Employing geophysical investigations in archaeology represents an optimal approach to streamline excavations, reduce project expenses, and direct efforts towards areas with the highest potential.


Site identification and mapping
– locate buried foundations, walls, and structures, map burial sites and identify subsurface features.
– identify changes in soil composition that may indicate anthropic activities
– locate metal objects, such as artifacts and coins
– locate voids, such as underground chambers and tombs

Geophysical methods play a vital role in the exploration, development, and production of oil and gas resources. The selection of the appropriate method(s) depends on the geology of the target area, the size and depth of the reservoir, and the exploration objectives.

Mapping of geological structures
– detect and map magnetic minerals associated with hydrocarbon-bearing rocks, such as iron-rich minerals in sedimentary basins
– monitor subsurface injection operations, like CO2 sequestration, by imaging the subsurface and identifying changes in fluid distribution and subsurface deformation (magnetometry)
– detect changes in subsurface dielectric properties, such as the presence of hydrocarbon reservoirs, by imaging the subsurface and identifying areas of high acoustic impedance contrast (GPR)

Seismic supervision and planning
– client representative services from negotiation of contract to final deliverables, from terms of contract, project planning, field operations supervision and data QC, to final deliverable evaluation
– determine the survey parameters, such as the survey area, line spacing, receiver and source configurations, and environmental considerations
– monitoring the data acquisition in real time and ensuring that the quality of the data meets the specified standards
– ensuring that the survey operations comply with health, safety, and environmental regulations and standards, as well as contractually agreed acquisition terms

Well permitting
– locate and negotiate with the landowners on behalf of the Client to secure the future location of the well
– obtaining all relevant permits and approvals for the Building Permit
– elaborating technical documentation for the well pad and road building
– obtaining the Environmental approval

Database Management

Completed Projects

C2S Geophysics has delivered multiple geophysical consulting projects in various domains. We possess a well-established proficiency in geophysical investigations aimed at characterizing construction sites. Our approach involves the integration of multiple seismic methods to assess subsurface conditions in alignment with international standards, integrating them with geotechnical in situ data, all geared towards conducting comprehensive feasibility studies. Seismic hazard studies are a must for each build, and we are prepared to deliver the best insight for your area of study.

We have successfully employed GPR methods to detect pipe distribution underground, determine the quality of the construction and identify features that would impose difficulties for the planned project.

C2S Geophysics has been involved in a multitude of archaeological studies, which narrowed down the digging locations and resulted in overall cost reduction for our clients.

As client representatives for oil and gas seismic surveys, we focused on obtaining the best data quality, optimizing the acquisition parameters and ensuring the environmental and safety rules are followed at all times. The supervision activity performed by out team reduced the final costs of the project by a significant margin.
