An Overview of Geophysics for Environmental and Engineering Applications - Thomas Brackman, Near Surface Geophysics Innovations
Geophysics is a set of tools that allows users to bring the subsurface into view with minimal digging, drilling or otherwise disturbing the surface. It can aid in targeting a drilling program and will provide information about what is between boreholes. Using the basic laws of physics, geophysical properties are measured, modeled, and displayed.  These geophysical properties are then used to infer geological conditions and construct an ‘image’ of the subsurface.  For example, Ohm’s law, which relates voltage, current and resistance, is used to determine the relative water saturation and associated ions in the subsurface.  Many geological properties can be inferred from such data obtain from the field.  Density contrast can be determined from gravity or seismic methods.  Radio waves can be used in ground penetrating radar to aid in determining to what extent earth materials will hold a charge, whereas electromagnetic surveys allow rapid scanning for metals and water content.  This presentation will give a brief, simple introduction into the theory behind the most widely used geophysical methods: electrical resistivity, GPR, electromagnetics and seismic.  Numerous case studies will be presented conveying the direct application of various geophysical methods for solving engineering and environmental problems.
