Skyline will provide the geologic expertise required to characterize your site and address the needs of your project. We provide geologic studies, rock slope characterization, and subsurface investigation support.

GEOLOGIC STUDIES

  • Geologic Site Characterization and Mapping

  • Geologic Suitability Studies

  • Data Reports

  • Site and Soils Evaluations to support onsite wastewater treatment system (OWTS) placement and design

  • Groundwater monitoring, strategic monitoring well placement, installation, and abandonment

ROCK SLOPE STUDIES 

  • Field and subsurface investigation, including rock coring

  • Geologic and structural characterization

  • Kinematic and rock quality analyses (RQD)

  • UAS’s to assist in data collection on inaccessible slopes and rock outcrops

SUBSURFACE INVESTIGATIONS

  • Geotechnical borings/sampling, rock coring, test pits, trenches

  • Installation of monitoring instrumentation for slope movement and groundwater information


The Benton Shale, a geologic formation commonly found in Colorado and other neighboring states. Here the beds are steeply tilted along the Front Range and comprised of thin, laminated, fissile layers of gray shale. Bioturbation is also visible in places, evidence for the movements of ancient organisms.

Standing atop a hogback with a striking view of the Front Range of the Rocky Mountains. The sedimentary beds along the hogback are steeply tilted and form a prominent linear ridge. As these layers erode and fall away, they expose beautiful glimpses into the past. Evidence of ancient waterways and an inland sea. Fluvial deposits, ocean ripples, claystone churned by ancient organisms, volcanic ash, and even dinosaur tracks and bones.
