Magnetic Prospection

VIAS developed and applied together with the Team Archeo Prospections® various multi-sensor caesium-gradiometers for efficent and high resolution archaeological prospection. The actual magnetometer-system of VIAS includes 6 CS-sensors on a non-magnetic cart. The system is operated by three persons and covers up to 1 ha per hour in a spatial resolution of 0.125 x 0.5 m with a sensitivity of 0.005 nT. 

Latest research focus on the development of a motorized device integrating 8 caesium sensors for rapid high resolution measurement of archaeological landscapes.
