Everyday Applied Geophysics 2: Electromagnetics and Magnetics covers the physical methods permitting the environmental exploration of the sub-surface in 1, 2, 3 or 4 dimensions (the latter for time-lapse in terms of physical environmental state and geometry). The book specifically addresses the feasible methods that are accessible and affordable to all users, providing a simple apparatus of electronic diagrams and free, Internet open-source software links for data interpretation.
- Proposes a practical, accessible and affordable applied geophysics resource for sub-surface environmental exploration
- Explains the topic's application to groundwater, raw material and resources, agriculture, buried pollutions and archaeology
Environmental technicians and researchers, students, engineers, universities, local authorities, any enterprise involved in water resource prospection, farmers, pollution surveyors, raw material extractors. People without a strong theoretical background in mathematics and physics but full of common sense. People interested in ham radios, electronics or certain outdoor activities. The book may contribute to an emerging community of geophysics amateurs.
Part I: Magnetic method
Part II: Inductive electromagnetic mathod (or Slingram)

Engineer Geophysicist (EOST), Professor at Sorbonne University, Nicolas Florsch teaches Applied Geophysics in the academic setting. After a thesis in electrical prospecting, his research leads him to take an interest in seismology, to variations of gravity (terrestrial tides), then to reinvest the subsurface investigation methods, or "applied geophysics", which it applies to resources and the environment, as well as archeology. Former consultant of Scientific and University Cooperation at the Embassy of France in the United States, he is the author of more than 120 scientific publications. Nicolas Florsch also holds a license of amateur radio (F4HOS), and practices several instruments in traditional Appalachian music.
