SUMO Geophysics

SUMO Geophysics is the largest provider of archaeological geophysics in the UK. Along with magnetic gradiometer and earth resistance surveys we also offer GPR with a wide range of antenna frequencies and multi channel systems to cover all situations. In June 2011 we became part of the SUMO group, and now offer topographic, measured building and utility surveys. We also provide forensic geophysical support to police forces in the UK and to the Independent Commission for the Location of Victims Remains in Ireland.

We have achieved ISO 9001 and ISO 14001, Achilles UVDB and CHAS accreditations, membership of The Survey Association and the EuroGPR.
