Write down in a few sentences what your report should look like, what it should contain and what principles it should follow. When you have finished check back here to see if you think you are done. If not, have another look, if yes, check off your list.

This evidence should be critically considered within the context of the site. As before, I’m using multilevel headings style which will automatically update if I ass another section – if you aren’t using this already I strongly advise that you do. It remains unacceptable to copy even a single sentence from existing texts, even if you use italics and cite it correctly, its still plagiarism. What we are aiming to do is critically analyse and compare existing work to tell the story of what is at or site and what we need to find out. If you are in doubt contact me. Key Modifications Give a brief summary of the changes to your model and why you are making them. We are considering a smaller area which may result in considering the borehole or literature information in more detail. introduction to the geology of the site. The format is up to you, but it is conventional to provide the basic information on geology in short paragraphs: Bedrock and Superficial Materials at Site Briefly describe details of stratigraphy, lithologies, thicknesses, characteristics of each unit but perhaps examining the Marlstone Rock Formation or Dyrham Formation more closely and have discovered that there are sub-units present or have read about nearby analogous sites where some detail has become apparent.Reconsider what characteristics you would use in the field to distinguish different rock or superficial units from each other specifically to this location, what might the Marlstone Rock Formation of Dyrham Formation (or subunits) be? Can these be used to frame specific questions that need answering in the planned investigation.Have you discovered anything new about the engineering geology of the site or area?Are there lessons to be learned from the field walk-over (by attendance or from the virtual field trip). Landslide Deposits at Site Consider the additional understanding we now have regarding the geophysics. What can his tell us about the landslides present. We perhaps know from reading about the site and from lectures that landslides in the Dyrham might be small rotational landslides or mudflows. What does the geophysics indicate is most likely?Draw the cross section at a natural scale including information from the geophysics. Consider how far that block of ‘limestone’ has to move horizontally. It’s a long way for a rotational landslide. Either the blocks in Transect 10 have translated a long way from the Marlstone Rock or they aren’t sourced from the Marlstone. Is this important? How can we find out? Hydrological Issues at Site The geophysics and consideration of the landslide geometry provide insight to the local hydrogeology. It is useful to describe this and consider how important it might be to my pipeline. Other Environmental Perhaps the fieldtrip (attended or virtual) give insight here:Are ground services (water, electricity, gas, waste) present?Are there any access problems on site? Tips (this will be repeated because its important) You should refer and cross-reference to the relevant section of your report.Can you provide COORDINATES of interesting features or use place names from your site?Can you provide any idea of quantity? (shape, volume, velocity)Can you refer to the literature? Are there any case studies? Review of Geophysical Techniques at Colliers Knap Max 6 pages. – This can be paragraphs, 3 tables or a large single table. Perhaps this is a good place to have some figures ResistivityDepth of Penetration Using any examples from the site or analogous case studies, what depth of penetration would we expect from a survey. Is the depth useful in answering any questions that might have arisen from report 1 or section 1 of this report? Vertical and Horizontal Resolution Using any examples from the site or analogous case studies, what resolution would we expect from a survey.

Can you add quantities? Make sure you put in the context of the site. Ground Investigation Design Max 6 pages. Rationale for further Investigation Why is further investigation necessary? – reflect on Report 1 and earlier sections of this report. What questions would it be useful to gather more information on to help the client? In reality, we would conduct an invasive investigation here. This should be detailed, with any borehole, trial pit detailed. Sampling should also be detailed. It would be useful to include a map at this stage, annotated with the locations of any investigation but also the features you are intending to examine. Borehole 1.
