DMT Geosciences offers services ranging from consulting to full turnkey implementation of monitoring systems to mitigate risks in projects ranging from urban settings to arctic environments.
At DMT, we are not bound to single processes and typically work with a whole variety of monitoring data and use “DMT Safeguard”, a web-based database-supported system for data management and analysis. This system allows us to customize our measurement systems to meet your particular monitoring needs, while our experts apply their specialist know-how to assist you in the assessment, analysis and interpretation of the collected data.
DMT works with clients to design and implement monitoring stations to track groundwater changes including water table, soil moisture content in the unsaturated zone, and water quality. The systems are designed to account for local conditions, in particular the harsh environments found in the Canadian North. A telemetry system can be installed to transfer data automatically to DMT’s office where the data is curated, analysed and regular reports provided. DMT often recommends using geophysical surveys to identify the optimal locations for installation thereby potentially reducing the number of monitoring stations required
DMT designs and installs Surface water monitoring stations in environmentally sensitive areas to develop a baseline water quality measurement and assess seasonal variations prior to development. On-going monitoring during development can then be used for assessing increased impact on the site.
Vibration monitoring is an essential practice to ensure vibrations from construction or blast activities do not impact nearby infrastructure for construction sites or mines. DMT’s vibration monitoring systems, including DMT’s Summit VIPA and VIB3D, have been used extensively throughout Europe and is able to measure to numerous vibration monitoring standards.
The Summit VIPA is a fully automated three-channel seismograph designed specifically for vibration and noise monitoring. The units can be linked together to build a network of continuous and event-based monitoring. Watch VIPA on YouTube.
Similarly, the VIB3D is a new low-cost sensor that can be deployed as a large vibration monitoring network for residential homes or monitoring other infrastructure.
DMT specialists advise on the layout of monitoring sensors and install a full monitoring system which transmits data vit LTE/WLAN to our offices. Data is curated and regular reports provided to the client. Both the Summit VIPA and VIB3D transmit data via LTE/WLAN to our cloud server where it is preserved and made available online using DMT’s SAFEGUARD system; our web-based universal monitoring tool.
