Modern Geophysics In Engineering Geology

Modern Geophysics In Engineering Geology
Geophysical surveying methods play an important role in the site investigation process. During the past decade considerable progress has been made in the development of geophysical equipment incorporating microprocessors and data loggers. This has been accompanied by corresponding advances in the computer software available to process, interpret and display the geophysical data obtained in a survey.The selection of a geophysical method for use in a specific geological environment requires close collaboration between the geophysicist and the civil engineer and engineering geologist. In this book many examples of the successful integration of geophysical surveys into the site investigation process are described. The authors are drawn from many different countries and the case histories presented clearly indicate the importance of geophysical methods in the construction history in a world-wide context.
