Environmental and Engineering Geophysics / Edition 1 available in Paperback
Geophysical imaging methods provide solutions to a wide range of environmental and engineering problems. This book comprehensively describes all of the principal techniques of geophysical surveying: gravity, magnetic, seismic, self-potential, resistivity, induced polarization, electromagnetic, ground-probing radar, radioactivity, geothermal, and borehole logging. Each chapter is supported by a large number of richly illustrated case histories. A valuable course-book for senior undergraduates and postgraduates in environmental and applied geophysics, this book will also serve as a supplementary textbook for students of geology and engineering, and a reference work for professional earth scientists, engineers and town planners.
