An Introduction to Applied and Environmental Geophysics by John M. Reynolds

By John M. Reynolds

An advent to utilized and Environmental Geophysics John M. Reynolds Reynolds Geo-Sciences Ltd, united kingdom An creation to utilized and Environmental Geophysics represents the 1st introductory textual content to explain the constructing box of environmental geophysics. an important share of the fabric hasn't ever ahead of been featured in a publication of this sort; really the case histories, a few of that have by no means been released. The geographical foundation of the case histories is around the globe, with examples originating from Australia to North the US, Arctic Canada to the Antarctic, and from Europe to China. a few of the new fabric contains chapters on targeted survey layout, flooring Penetrating Radar, electro-magnetic equipment in environmental functions, electric Sub-Surface Imaging (2-D tomography), Spectral prompted Polarisation, and excessive solution engineering mirrored image seismology. the diversity of purposes lined 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. appropriate mathematical expressions are separated into containers to complement the textual content and the booklet is profusely illustrated with many figures and line drawings. perfect for college kids short of a vast advent to the topic, the e-book is additionally designed for working towards civil engineers, geologists, archaeologists and environmental scientists who desire an summary of recent geophysical equipment correct to their self-discipline. This publication is the 1st to supply this kind of complete insurance of environmental geophysics.
