Near-Surface Geophysical Methods

This course addresses the physical properties of natural or anthropogenic materials in the subsurface. A number of geophysical methods will be introduced that are capable of identifying where these physical properties are anomalous. The course will provide examples from environmental science, forensic science and archaeology, including how to find sites containing potable groundwater, contaminants, hazards, ancient human workings, and illicit burials.
