Exploration Geophysics of the Shallow Subsurface
This book focuses on the methods and techniques of shallow surface geophysical exploration. It weighs the relative utility of various methods, including siesmic methods, the new techniques of refraction seismology, electrical resistivity and microgravity investigations, and details their application to exploration at shallow depths. Applications to shallow and deep survey are elucidated, compared and contrasted. Throughout, the book presents examples, case histories and computer programs for the Macintosh designed to help the reader gain hands-on experience of shallow target exploration. In addition, spreadsheet templates that support data reduction techniques are included, with instructions on how to access the templates, change cell values and study the effects.
