    Overview: This seminar is designed for geologists, engineers, and environmental specialists who want to maximize information for a site characterization by using surface and borehole geophysical methods.  It will focus primarily on environmental, geotechnical, ground water, and oil & gas applications.

    The class objective is to provide the user of surface and borehole geophysical methods with a working understanding of the available geophysical methods for utilization on their projects.  Each surface and borehole method has advantages and disadvantages that must be understood in order to apply the most appropriate method(s) to the project objectives and site conditions.  This class will provide the applications, strengths, weaknesses, and key factors, in using each method.  Examples and case histories will be discussed to provide the attendees with an understanding of how the methods can be applicable to similar projects.
