If you are new in the market for archeological survey equipment, then you might find yourself wondering just what all is available to you. As you probably already know, there are a lot of different types of equipment out there, some more valuable than others. However, if you are just beginning to build your career in this field, you might want to try to invest in as much as you can. You just never know what you are going to need and when you are going to need it.
One great tool for the job is the ministing earth resistivity meter, which works great for small jobs that require testing of the electrical grounding grid. This is a meter that has the capability to be used in automatic or manual mode, so it works great for everyone.
Then you have the AGI EarthImager in 2D and in 3D. The 2D imager has the feature of inversion of the borehole and surface resistivity, survey planning, terrain correction, survey planning, and continuous resistivity profiling. Of course, there are many people who might prefer the 3D imager due to the three-dimensional interpretation of the data collected.
While those might be some of the more popular pieces of equipment to start out with, you will also have the SuperSting Marine, the PowerSting High Voltage External Transmitters, and t he SuperSting R1/IP Earth Resistivity Meter along with many others.
The key is to make sure that these pieces of equipment are purchased from a reputable source so that you do not end up with a bunch of useless equipment and wasted money. You know that this is a field that requires accuracy so there is no room for error. This is not just in relation to the work you perform, but in the equipment you purchase. If the equipment is not the best, your work with it cannot be the best.
All of your archeological equipment should come tested and fully backed by a warranty that you will be able to count on. This way, you know that you are getting the best equipment for your money.
