An Introduction to Applied and Environmental Geophysics by John M. Reynolds

By John M. Reynolds

An advent to utilized and Environmental Geophysics, 2nd Edition, describes the quickly constructing box of near-surface geophysics. The e-book covers a variety of purposes together with mineral, hydrocarbon and groundwater exploration, and emphasises using geophysics in civil engineering and in environmental investigations.  Following on from the foreign approval for the 1st version, this new, revised, and lots more and plenty improved version comprises extra case histories, and outlines of geophysical concepts now not formerly integrated in such textbooks.

The point of arithmetic and physics is intentionally saved to a minimal yet is defined qualitatively in the text.  suitable mathematical expressions are separated into bins to complement the text.  The e-book is profusely illustrated with many figures, pictures and line drawings, many by no means formerly released. Key resource literature is equipped in an in depth reference part; a listing of internet addresses for key agencies is additionally given in an appendix as a priceless extra resource.

  • Covers new suggestions equivalent to Magnetic Resonance Sounding, managed- resource EM, shear-wave seismic refraction, and airborne gravity and EM techniques
  • Now contains radioactivity surveying and extra discussions of down-hole geophysical tools; hydrographic and Sub-Bottom Profiling surveying; and UneXploded Ordnance detection
  • Expanded to incorporate extra forensic, archaeological, glaciological, agricultural and bio-geophysical applications
  • Includes additional info on physio-chemical homes of geological, engineering and environmental materials
  • Takes an absolutely international approach
  • Companion site with extra assets on hand at www.wiley.com/go/reynolds/introduction2e
  • Accessible center textbook for undergraduates in addition to an excellent reference for professionals

The moment variation is perfect for college students in need of a huge advent to the topic and can also be designed for working towards civil and geotechnical engineers, geologists, archaeologists and environmental scientists who want an summary of recent geophysical tools correct to their self-discipline. whereas the 1st version used to be the 1st textbook to supply this type of finished insurance of environmental geophysics, the second one version is much more a ways ranging by way of concepts, functions and case histories.
