Scientists from Sander Geophysics are taking one of the company's AIRGrav systems to Antarctica, as part of International Polar Year, to unveil the mystery of the massive Gamburtsev mountain range which is buried under ice four kilometres thick.  Sander Geophysics' AIRGrav instrument will reveal the distribution of materials with varied densities.  The airborne survey flown in a grid pattern will take about a month.

Sander Geophysics has earned the privilege of participating in the Antarctica's Gamburtsev Province Project (AGAP) which is part of the fourth International Polar Year (IPY) taking place during the 2008-2009 season.   The AGAP team selected AIRGrav over other gravimeters for this demanding Antarctic survey.

Sander Geophysics is pleased to be flying the new QUEST-West survey for Geoscience BC in the Bulkley-Nechako Region of central BC.  The contract involves acquiring over 23,000 line kilometres of airborne gravity data over the main QUEST-West area plus the Babine-Takla lakes area extension.  With the increased investment and exploration generated by the initial project Geoscience BC was eager to launch a new program in an area deeply affected by the pine beetle epidemic and a downturn in the forestry industry.

Geoscience BC released the final data set for the QUEST airborne gravity survey that was flown by Sander Geophysics in the winter of 2007-08.  The airborne gravity digital data, grids and final technical report can be downloaded at Geoscience BC QUEST Project Data Releases.  This gravity survey involved more than 27,000 line kilometres of data at a 2 km line spacing.
