Development of a multi-channel digitizer for geophysical measurements
|Project:||Development of a non-magnetic digitizer LEA D2 for mobile, ultra-light geophysical measuring systems
|Funding:||Zentrales Innovationsprogramm Mittelstand (ZIM) des Bundesministeriums für Wirtschaft und Technologie ( BMWi)|
|Objective:||Optimisation of geophysical prospection techniques in archaeological research, enhancement of efficiency and spherical resolution of geophysical measurements
|The extension LEA-MAXIX with 19 gradiometer probes, at a distance of 0.25 m in the research project
|First external user of the new digitizer is the LBI for Archaeological Prospection and Virtual Archaeology in Vienna, founded in 2010. Extense geomagnetic prospection work applying
multic-channel fluxgate-arrays with the digitizer LEA D2 resulted in the discovery of an unknown neolithic Henge monument in the surroundings of Stonehenge. Further applications using motor vehicles were undertaken within a reasearch project in collaboration of LBI and RGZM Mainz in 2011.
