Description:

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: Update section on Ground Penetrating Radar to include multichannel methods New…
