Geosurveys innovation

Dr Andi Pfaffhuber

The presentation will use a range of case studies to illustrate how geophysical methods are being used innovatively to deliver geotechnical efficiency. The presentation illustrates:

About the speaker

Dr Andi PfaffhuberNGI

Andi has recently moved to Perth with two goals: to establish onshore geophysical activities at NGI’s Perth office and to spend a sabbatical time away from NGI’s main office in Oslo. As part of his sabbatical, he is spend a week at the Antarctic CRC in Hobart to work on publications related to his polar research past. Andi has been with NGI for ten years and built up a Geosurveys section that provides the missing link between high quality survey data and complex, real life geotechnical challenges. This link and mutual understanding is the core added value that Geosurveys’ assembled expertise and experience provide in consulting and research projects anchored in NGI’s building, construction, transportation and natural hazard market areas.

Representing NGI he has lead several projects using innovative technologies to map the earth’s surface and subsurface with respect to settlement, bedrock topography, weakness zones, slope stability and contaminated ground. This includes geophysical investigations, GIS and remote sensing.
