Yanlong Niu discusses his paper, “In-situ physical properties of reclaimed lands in Singapore,” from the May issue of The Leading Edge.
Reclaimed land construction is crucial for the sustainable development of the land-scarce city-state of Singapore. To characterize the physical properties of two different types of reclaimed lands, Yanlong and his co-authors conducted both active and passive seismic surveys.
Yanlong explores the value of multichannel analysis of surface waves to investigate these lands and shares what they discovered with these pioneering tests. These in-situ measurements are crucial for civil engineering constructions and the redevelopment of reclaimed lands in the future. So he also offers tips on how other geophysicists can build upon this study in their communities.

For decades, Geospace has delivered robust data acquisition systems of all scales. Geospace’s PRM solutions were the first in the world to provide a 4D understanding of marine reservoirs. Today, Geospace leads the way with Optoseis fiber optic sensing technology for reservoir monitoring.
Recently, the company launched a reduced sensor footprint solution using compact phased array technology for passive monitoring of microseismicity known as SADAR. Visit Geospace to learn about the latest advances in reservoir intelligence.
