Near-Surface Geophysics provides options and basic of near-surface geophysics partly 1 and functions and case histories partly 2. devoted to Stanley H. Ward, Near-Surface Geophysics updates and extends the scope of his landmark three-volume booklet, Geotechnical and Environmental Geophysics, released through SEG in 1990. half 1 of Near-Surface Geophysics comprises leading edge fabric on magnetic and electric equipment, subsurface geophysics. near-surface seismology, emphasizes the selection of actual houses, the superiority of multimethod surveys and built-in interpretations, and the expanding use of model-based survey making plans, execution, and interpretation. Near-Surface Geophysics, a peer-reviewed hardcover booklet of 732 pages, can be of curiosity to practitioners and students.
