Ray Paths part of Cutting Edge:Geophysics:Workshop 07:Geophysics Activities
Students work in groups to "walk" through the ray paths of the direct wave, ground roll, reflected wave, and refracted wave. This exercise gives them a visual image of the ray paths as well as the ability ...
Free-Air Gravity part of Cutting Edge:Geophysics:Workshop 07:Geophysics Activities
Students use gravity measurements to estimate the height to the top of a platform in the Howe-Russell Attrium. This assignment is used to show the precision of gravity measurements and the Free-Air correction
Exploration and Environmental Geophysics part of Cutting Edge:Course Design:Goals Database
In the absence of drilling, geophysical exploration methods are the principal means of examining the shallow subsurface. These techniques are non-invasive and relatively inexpensive. The objective of this course is ...
