tTEM 2x4

The tTEM 2x4 system is a towed, ground-based, transient electromagnetic system, designed for detailed 3D geophysical and geological mapping of the shallow subsurface (0-80 m) in a fast and cost efficient way. The detailed 3D coverage is obtained by fast data repetition and a small line spacing of typically 10-20 m.

The tTEM system is quick to deploy and easily managed by a field crew of two persons. The tTEM-system consists of an ATV, carrying the instrumentation and towing the transmitter frame and the receiver coil. The transmitter and receiver coils are mounted on sleds for a smooth ride over rough fields/terrain.​

The tTEM data processing is fully integrated with the Aarhus Workbench software package.
