Borehole muography is a version of underground muography and as the name suggests, it is based on exploitation of the existing boreholes as means to provide muographic surveys. In borehole muography, muographic density imaging is carried out by measuring the number of cosmic-ray muons detected from a given direction to the muon detector and then comparing that number with similar numeric values from other directions. The denser the object, the more muons it absorbs and hence less reach the muon detector. To put it differently, the attenuation of muons in various directions can be associated with the density variations in the media.
Although we have been active in promoting muography and the company in the last few months, we have not only endlessly talked, talked and talked about muography, but also published some conference texts on the subject, continued instrument development projects and commenced actual surveys. We have also continued providing consultation to our appreciated clients, mostly in the field of mineral exploration. Many of these activities will generate more work in the future, no doubt.
Hopefully the next gap between post updates is shorter than this one. If not, the reason is probably that we have been too busy to write updates.
See you soon!
