Fromm Applied Technology is in the geophysics consulting business.

As a geophysicist and geophysical consultant

Fromm has experience with environmental geophysics, mining, archaeology geophysics, engineering geophysics, time domain, frequency domain, borehole geophysics, gravity, and underground private utility locating services.

Your job is to decide when, where, and how Fromm Applied Technology can help you with your seismic, electrical resistivity, electromagnetic, magnetic, and ground penetrating radar surveys. Art Fromm, a professional geophysicist, started geophysical consulting in 1985. He is dedicated to near surface geophysical applications and conducts more sophisticated surveys, such as, 3D GPR, OhmMapper, multi-electrode resistivity imaging with a SuperSting, seismic reflection, MASW, groundwater investigations, and other large scale near surface geophysical surveys. In addition, he personally acquires the geophysical data and is skilled at interpreting geophysical results. Having spent a vast amount of time in the field with sophisticated electronics, he is capable of maintaining and troubleshooting geophysical equipment.

Geophysics and Geophysical Surveys

Art Fromm became a geophysicist after talking with an experienced physicist, geophysicist, professor, and today a life long friend who inspired him to sign up to become an applied geophysicist. With his math – physics and geology – geophysics degrees from the University of Wisconsin in hand he decided to apply his knowledge to assist people with investigating the subsurface using geophysics and to set straight the impression that there is not a crystal ball that peers into the earth.

With over 30 years of experience, it is Fromm Applied Technology’s opinion that

desirable seismic, electrical resistivity, ground penetrating radar, electromagnetic, and magnetic results have more to do with the personal approach of the geophysicist then it does with how the newest geophysical technology is packaged. Today we have available to us some of the greatest geophysical instrumentation ever engineered. A geophysicist needs to choose his technology wisely. That is why Fromm Applied Technology supports a wide range of geophysical methods. Often, no one method will yield desirable results or an obvious interpretation.

Something to Think About

The greatest danger in the geophysical profession is not ……

having a well-educated field hardened geophysicist overlook or misidentify a geophysical anomaly,

but ……

it is knowing that an untrained person can turn on an instrument having no past experience on how to operate the geophysical equipment and acquire geophysical data.

Ask before you contract,

if an experienced geophysicist will be going to the field?
