By John M. Reynolds

An creation to utilized and Environmental Geophysics John M. Reynolds Reynolds Geo-Sciences Ltd, united kingdom An advent to utilized and Environmental Geophysics represents the 1st introductory textual content to explain the constructing box of environmental geophysics. an important percentage of the fabric hasn't ever earlier than been featured in a booklet of this kind; relatively the case histories, a few of that have by no means been released. The geographical foundation of the case histories is world wide, with examples originating from Australia to North the USA, Arctic Canada to the Antarctic, and from Europe to China. a number of the new fabric comprises chapters on unique survey layout, flooring Penetrating Radar, electro-magnetic tools in environmental purposes, electric Sub-Surface Imaging (2-D tomography), Spectral caused Polarisation, and excessive solution engineering mirrored image seismology. the variety of functions coated contains mineral and hydrocarbon exploration, however the maximum emphasis is at the use of geophysics in civil engineering, and in environmental and groundwater investigations. the extent of arithmetic and physics is intentionally saved to a minimal yet is defined qualitatively in the textual content. proper mathematical expressions are separated into bins to complement the textual content and the booklet is profusely illustrated with many figures and line drawings. excellent for college kids short of a extensive advent to the topic, the e-book is additionally designed for training civil engineers, geologists, archaeologists and environmental scientists who want an summary of recent geophysical tools suitable to their self-discipline. This ebook is the 1st to supply any such complete insurance of environmental geophysics.
