Non-Invasive Imaging and Assessment of Active Karst Features in Proximity to Paved Roadways

In an effort to better understand and define the lateral and vertical extent of active karst features in immediate proximity to paved Missouri Department of Transportation roadways in Springfield, Missouri, Missouri University of Science and Technology will acquire electrical resistivity tomography (ERT) data. The intent is to use this non-invasive technology to map the lateral and vertical extent of the active karst features so that appropriate mitigation plans can be developed.
