Case Histories in Applied Geophysics

The University of British Columbia, Department of Earth and Ocean Sciences

This site is designed as a reference resource for case histories in applied geophysics. Sorted first by geophysical method, including gravity, magnetics, seismic methods, DC resistivity - induced polarization and SP, electromagnetics, GPR (Ground Penetrating Radar), and inversion methods, each section is then broken down into three additional sections. 1. Summaries from the literature compiled for teaching purposes. These are usually short summaries of one part of a journal article, with one or two relevant figures. 2. Case histories written at the University of British Columbia. 3. Links to case histories at other web sites, often from companies that perform contract work, or manufacture equipment or software.
