Geophysical Prospection of Monte Albán’s Main Plaza: An Overview of Results
During the summer of 2017, the Proyecto Geofísico de Monte Albán (PGMA) carried out a large-scale geophysical survey of the site’s Main Plaza. The survey utilized three instruments, a gradiometer, an electrical resistance meter, and a ground-penetrating radar array and achieved nearly 100 percent coverage of the plaza. Covering more than 35,000 m2, the PGMA represents the most extensive geophysical survey ever carried out in Oaxaca. This paper details the methods of the survey, examines which instruments were most effective, and presents results from all three technologies.
