Magnetometer Survey part of Cutting Edge:Geophysics:Workshop 07:Geophysics Activities
This activity collects two sets of magnetic data, using two different types of magnetometers, one which collects individual data points, and one that collects continuous readings. Both methods have pros and cons, in data collection efficiency, real-time interpretations, data analysis, and data interpretation, and this exercise stresses these situations. These are then used as examples for other geophysical methods and instruments as they are introduced.
Introduction to Geophysics part of Cutting Edge:Course Design:Goals Database
An introduction to the theories of geophysical methods, concentrating on shallow-level and environmental issues. Gravity, magnetics, electrical resistivity, IP and SP measurements, seismic refraction and reflection, GPR. Most instruments will be demonstrated and used in field situations
