Everyday Applied Geophysics 3: Refraction Seismic Methods covers the physical methods that permit 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 methods feasible, accessible and affordable to all users and provides simple apparatus electronic diagrams, along with Internet open-source and free software links for data interpretation.

Key Features

  • Presents applications to groundwater, raw material and resources, agriculture, buried pollutions and archaeology
  • Explains seismic refraction
  • Provides methods for environmental studies


Environmental technicians and researchers, students, engineers, universities, local authorities, any enterprise involved in water resource prospection, farmers, pollution surveyors, raw material extractors, notably in developing countries. Applied geophysics users without theoretical training. Good amateurs. People without a strong theoretical background in mathematics and physics but full of common sense
