Erin Ernst

Geoscientist

Calgary

Erin Ernst B.Sc. (Hons.), M.Sc., P.Geo. ,became interested in near surface geophysics through a summer student job during university (2008) and has had the opportunity to pursue that passion in many different forms since that time. She has a M.Sc. in Hydrogeophysics, from the University of Calgary, which focused on the use of airborne time domain electromagnetic methods (TEM) for groundwater exploration. Throughout her career she has had the opportunity to work with various types of geophysical data, including electrical resistivity tomography (ERT), seismic refraction, reflection, and multichannel analysis of surface waves (MASW), distributed temperature sensing (DTS), electromagnetic (EM), and ground penetrating radar (GPR) methods. Some of her areas of experience include supervising geophysical field crews; data collection in challenging and remote environments; data quality control in the field; data processing, analysis, and interpretation; technical writing and reporting; and presenting technical results to clients and colleagues. In addition to geophysics, Erin has also participated in multidisciplinary projects and cross training opportunities including interfacing with pipeline engineering staff to coordinate the integration of geophysics work into large pipeline projects, helping to coordinate an emergency spill response, and coordinating major engineering and geophysics proposals. Erin has also been working as a project manager since 2018, her experience includes managing a Dam Safety Review, as well as geophysics projects.
