  9. 9. Progress Update Data Issues: Data process time <ul><li>Identifying start and end reflection points takes time </li></ul><ul><li>16 permittivity per hour </li></ul><ul><li>c.11520 per station per month </li></ul><ul><li>Currently 4 stations –too many to do this manually! </li></ul><ul><li>Conductivity data is simpler </li></ul><ul><li>Quantity is the same as for permittivity </li></ul><ul><li>SOLUTION: Script needed </li></ul>
  10. 10. <ul><li>Finish and install the remaining two sensors at the clay site at Diddington </li></ul><ul><li>Develop a script to computer analyse the waveforms from the TDR to process the data quickly </li></ul><ul><li>Source a vibracorer and develop a methodology on frequency and locations for coring </li></ul><ul><li>Begin geotechnical laboratory tests on the soil samples from the two sites </li></ul>Progress Update Future Work
