Kim has over 40 years experience in borehole geophysical and video surveying with particular emphasis on water well condition assessment. Kim was a member of the British Standards Committee on Borehole Geophysical Logging for Water Wells and currently lectures and gives seminars to MSc courses run by The University of Newcastle and the Environment Agency. Publications have included the down-hole geophysics chapter of a water practice manual published by the Institution of Water Engineers and Scientists.
Simon joined TerraDat in 2005 having spent 10 years in volcanological geophysical research and teaching. Having completed his PhD on pyroclastic surges in 1995, Simon went on to a Post-doc research position at the Institute of Geophysics of the National University of Mexico and followed by a period as a Reserach Professor at the State University of New York at Buffalo. On his return to Wales, Simon joined TerraDat as its first (and so far only) Operations Manager. His duties comprise the design and management of a wide variety of geophysical projects that range from regional scale investigations to intensive local site studies. He has implemented and maintained ISOs 9001, 14001 and OHSAS18001 status within the company and controls day-to-day running of the company and project liaison.
