Technological advances in microelectronics have led to advances in the geotechnical instrumentation market. These advances have produced instruments with more frequent reading cycles, arguably higher quality data, and systems allowing for almost real-time, internet-friendly viewing and analysis of the data by engineers, clients, and project stakeholders.  Given the availability of this technology and the level of risk associated with underground construction in the built environment, the number and types of instrumentation continues to increase on these projects. 
Join BSCES for a general discussion of these trends and innovations, along with descriptions of newer, more advanced instrumentation systems currently being used on a wider scale for geotechnical monitoring and quality control.  Time will be provided at the end of the presentation for questions and further discussion.
