Forensics

In criminal investigations where there is a search for a body or weapons cache, geophysics can provide crucial information.

The Grad601 single-axis gradiometer is used in Forensics in the same way as in Archaeology to detect buried remains, weaponry or a refilled pit.

Both the Grad601 gradiometer and the MS2/MS3 system can locate where items have been buried, either by directly detecting the buried artefacts or by identifying the contrast in magnetic susceptibility between the refilled pit and the surrounding soil.
