Providing background, data analysis, and case histories, Handbook of Agricultural Geophysics presents an in-depth examination of near-surface geophysical methods and their agricultural applications. This book includes current geophysical methods, such as electromagnetic induction, as well as developing methods, such as geomagnetic surveying. It explores the areas of agriculture that can benefit the most from these methods, including precision farming and hydrologic monitoring. It discusses global positioning systems and geographic information systems. It also addresses field and laboratory techniques like time domain reflectometry, cone penetrometers, and gamma ray tomography.
