This practical volume applies geophysical techniques to hazardous waste site investigations, highway bridge foundations, and water quality.
Seven peer-reviewed papers in a section on Surface Geophysics and Borehole Geophysics discuss:
in situ soil testing
measurement of engineering properties in rocks and sediments
earthquake/seismic sensitivity of soils
water quality monitoring
and site characterization for hazardous waste studies.
For hydrologists, hydrogeologists, civil engineers, and soil test engineers working in site characterization, construction foundation, or water supply areas.
