Everyday Applied Geophysics 3: Refraction Seismic Methods 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 ground is transparent to electrical currents, electromagnetic induction, magnetic fields, and seismic (acoustic) waves. All extend our senses by using the propagation of these phenomena through underground materials. The book specifically addresses the methods feasible, accessible and affordable to all users and provides simple apparatus electronic diagrams, and internet open-source and free software links for data interpretation.
- Proposes a practical, accessible and affordable applied geophysics for sub- surface environmental exploration
- Application to groundwater, raw material and resources, agriculture, buried pollutions, 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
