Exploration and Environmental Geophysics I - GEOS305

This unit explores the application of geophysical techniques from the exploration for minerals to help solve environmental, engineering and ground water problems. Topics include: potential field techniques, induced polarisation, electromagnetic, electrical, seismic and radiometric methods. Generally, emphasis is placed on the applications and relative merits of the various methods for particular aspects of exploration and environmental problems, rather than on rigorous theoretical treatment. Practical work includes: laboratory exercises in the reduction, plotting and interpretation of geophysical data.
