  • FPM Geophysical & UXO Services is one of the leading geophysical services firms in North America. With 8 regional offices and our main office in Oak Ridge Tennessee, we are strategically positioned to provide service to our customers throughout the United States and overseas.

    FPM's highly-experienced staff of geophysicists, engineers and technicians has worldwide project experience collecting, reporting and managing geophysical data from environmental, engineering, water resource, and UXO geophysical surveys for our commercial and government clients. Using a broad spectrum of surface and borehole geophysical technologies, we provide high-resolution geophysical imaging services for nearly any project type. Innovation and creativity, combined with a strong work ethic and an understanding of our clients needs and project constraints, are the qualities that make FPM the best choice.

    Our personnel collect and analyze a variety of geophysical data types, but are also well-rounded in geology, groundwater hydrology, and geographic information system (GIS) applications. Some of the more common geophysical surveys we perform include:

  • Magnetic, Gravity, and Spontaneous Potential (SP)
  • Time- and Frequency-Domain Electromagnetic (EM)
  • Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR)
  • Electrical Resistivity and Induced Polarization (IP)
  • Seismic Reflection and Refraction
  • Borehole Geophysical


  • FPM routinely collects global positioning system (GPS) or total station land survey data during fieldwork to provide precise geophysical data positioning. We understand that our customers often need more than data outputs and interpretive maps. Our GIS specialists can prepare maps and cross-sections integrating existing site information and land survey data together with the geophysical information. In short, we are innovative and qualified to match your technical needs, and have the dedication to ensure that your project is successful.

    Understanding the limitations of any geophysical method is as important as knowing the capabilities of that particular technique. We are aware of those limitations and will assist you in determining the most suitable geophysical approach for your project.

    If you have any questions about how geophysics can be used on your project or would like a cost estimate, please Contact Us.
