Geophysical and geotechnical surveys 

The main missions of the Bureau of Geotechnology are the applications of airborne geophysics, remote sensing and geochemistry data to support geological resources and engineering geological works and managing the database and data processing for all geoinformation.
 
Geochemistry databse
 
The main missions of the Bureau of Geotechnology are the applications of airborne geophysics, remote sensing and geochemistry data to support geological resources and engineering geological works and managing the database and data processing for all geoinformation.Thailand’s Geochemistry database includes data collected throughout the country ranging from stream sediments to soil and rock chip samples in the
scale of 1:250,000.
 
Remote sensing
 
The main missions of the Bureau of Geotechnology are the applications of airborne geophysics, remote sensing and geochemistry data to support geological resources and engineering geological works and managing the database and data processing for all geoinformation.Remote sensing data processing is regulary prepared for the DMR’s routine geological, geophysical and other geotechnical suyvers, carried out to support geological resources and engineering geological works.
 
Marine Geology
 
The main missions of the Bureau of Geotechnology are the applications of airborne geophysics, remote sensing and geochemistry data to support geological resources and engineering geological works and managing the database and data processing for all geoinformation.The Ancient map of the Gulf of Thailand shows seawater invasion about 70 km. from the present position. After the end of the last Ice Age, the sea level was about 4-5 meters higher than the present level.
 
Geophysical works
 
DMR conducted nationwide airborne geophysical surveys between 1984 and 1988 in order to provide essential basic geoscientific data for mineral resources development and geologically related projects and activities. The surveys included magnetic, radiometric and VLF–EM, and frequency–domain electromagnetic surveys over five selected areas.
 
The ground geophysics surveys are regularly applied to reveal the underground problems in many geological explorations, e.g., engineering geology, environmental geology, geohazards and mineral resources explorations. The most frequently applied geophysical methods are Magnetic, Gravity, Ground Penetrating Radar and Electrical Resistivity.
 
Drilling
 
The DMR’s drilling teams are equipped with heavy machinery, and are prepared to support the exploration of geological resources and solving of geohazard and engineering problems.
 
Geotechnical works
 
DMR carries out research on the development and rehabilitation of abandoned mines, geological conservation sites and geohazard affected areas.
