About this book

This handy pocket-sized book provides practical information and assistance to anyone engaged in small-scale surveys on the ground. This has become the standard text in this area for use in the field. The experience of the well-respected author of the first three editions combined with the cutting edge knowledge of the new co-author means that the fourth edition will retain its place as one of the most popular handbooks in applied geophysics. The 4th edition now includes comprehensive updates on the use of GPS and new sections on surface wave seismics, borehole geophysics and towed array systems.

New to this edition:
- Updated section on Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) to include multichannel methods.
- New section on surface wave seismics (a method that has been languishing in the background for many years but is now becoming very popular).
- New section on borehole geophysics (crosshole/downhole seismics, crosshole res, crosshole GPR. Formerly restricted to 'large-scale' operations but now becoming more routinely applicable).
- Section on towed array systems (becoming increasingly popular for large accessible areas).
- Major update of section on use of GPS.
