Richard Benson has forty years of professional experience in the Applied Earth Sciences. He formed Technos, Inc. in 1971 and has pioneered the application of many geophysical methods for environmental and geotechnical projects. He holds a B.S. degree in Geology and Geophysics from the University of Minnesota with minors in Electrical Engineering, Math and Physics (1965). His M.S. work was done in Coastal Engineering at the University of Miami, Institute of Marine Sciences (1965–1967). In 2004, Mr. Benson was presented with the Gold Medal Contribution Award for Exceptional Contribution to EEGS and the Engineering and Environmental Geophysical community.
Adnand Bitri received an M.S. (1985) in geophysics from the Univeristy of Tirana and a Ph.D. (1992) in geophysics from the University of Strasbourg (France). In 1995 he joined the French geological survey BRGM. His professional interests include surface waves inversion, noise attenuation, Ground Penetrating Radar, and data processing.
