GeoTek Alaska, Geotechnical Engineers, Services, Anchorage, Alaska

GeoTek Alaska is one of the state's recognized leaders in geophysical services, including groundwater sampling, auger drilling, and well monitoring. Although they are based in Anchorage, their projects have crisscrossed the vast Alaskan landscape since the company's founding in 2002. They specialize in acquiring subsurface data for environmental and geotechnical purposes, using the most advanced techniques and instrumentation available.

GeoTek Alaska’s goal is to provide accurate subsurface analysis using cost-effective data collection systems that minimize soil disturbance. Currently, they use Geoprobe® technology, a direct push machine that probes the soil with sensors and tools without requiring drilling or soil removal. This simplifies projects by reducing ground surface disturbance, and eliminates the need to handle, contain, and store hazardous soil contaminants.

GeoTek Alaska also utilizes electromagnetic tools to detect buried metal and hydrocarbon contamination. Ground penetrating radar is used to detect contaminants and to perform stratigraphy, determining the order and relationship of subsurface strata and archaeological remains. The company specializes in soil and groundwater sampling, gas chromatography, bioremediation, well monitoring, and membrane interface probing to directly detect contamination and lithology.

This advanced team is continually investing in state-of-the-art and proven technologies, instruments, and equipment to glean the most complete and accurate data for their clients. For instance, the ultraviolet optimal screening tool and utility locating screening tool enable GeoTek Alaska's geotechnical drilling contractors to acquire subsurface information that would otherwise be impossible or impractical.

If your community or organization requires groundwater sampling, auger drilling, or well monitoring services, contact Anchorage's geophysical data experts at GeoTek Alaska. To learn more about their services, visit their website, or call (907) 569-5900 to speak to a friendly expert in subsurface data collection.
