Find the UST with GPR part of Cutting Edge:Geophysics:Workshop 07:Geophysics Activities
Field-based activity that uses GPR to find an underground storage tank (UST). Optionally, data provided with the activity enables lab or class use as well. Activity can be enhanced with use of GPS unit that takes points at the intersections of survey lines. USTs can produce pronounced anomalies that students of all proficiencies can see and grasp intuitively.
Resistivity Profile in an Urban Setting part of Cutting Edge:Geophysics:Workshop 07:Geophysics Activities
Activity in an urban setting that includes an electrical resistivity line and hydrogeological information from nearby monitoring wells that enables students to create a meaningful interpretation of subsurface hydrogeology.
