About this book

Geophysical imaging methods provide solutions to a wide range of environmental and engineering problems, including soil and groundwater contamination by waste dumps, safe disposal of chemical and nuclear waste, to site testing for dams, reservoirs, power plants and subways. This textbook, which is supported by a large number of richly illustrated case histories, provides a valuable course-book for advanced undergraduates and postgraduates in environmental and applied geophysics. It also serves as a reference work for professional earth scientists, engineers and town planners.
