The Hydraulic Profiling Tool (HPT) estimates in-situ profiles of permeability and soil stratigraphy for hydrogeological and geoenvironmental site investigations. The HPT probe injects water in-situ while the probe is advancing. HPT profiling can be used to quickly characterize the hydraulic properties of a site and identify zones for further detailed investigation through sampling, borehole permeability tests, and well-monitoring installations.
