Near surface geophysical methods

General description

This short course deals with the applications of geophysical methods to environmental, geotechnical and groundwater investigations. The geophysical methods (shallow seismic, gravity, magnetic, electrical and electromagnetic) allow subsurface features to be located, mapped and characterized by making measurements at the surface that respond to a physical, electrical or chemical property. These non-invasive methods may be applied to several environmental and hydrogeologic problems.
