About this Project
Measuring Depth to Bedrock for an Urban Renewal Project explores the use of seismic refraction methods to evaluate the subsurface geology for an urban renewal project along Codorus Creek, in York, PA. Pipes, Tree Roots or Unmarked Graves? Forensic Geophysics has students analyze GPR data from surveys conducted to map utility lines (e.g., pipes and cables) or to locate unmarked graves. In Evaluating the Health of an Urban Wetland, students investigate the relationship between electrical resistivity and physical properties of the soil in Harrier Meadow and evaluate a hypothesis relating the distribution of plant species to groundwater salinity.
