Over the past 10 years, near surface geophysics has become very accessible to non-experts, due to the development of reliable, easy-to-use instrumentation and intuitive, user-friendly software. As a result, new opportunities exist for applying near surface geophysical techniques to problems of watershed hydrology and critical zone processes. The Hands-on Workshop, “Near-Surface Geophysics for Hydrology” will introduce participants to several key methods of near-surface geophysics and their application to hydrology and critical zone processes. Techniques covered will include:

  • Seismic refraction
  • Ground Penetrating Radar
  • Electrical resistivity
  • Magnetics
  • Electromagnetic Induction
  • Borehole Geophysical Logging
  • Nuclear Magnetic Resonance

The course will combine lecture and hands-on instruction with state-of-the-practice geophysical equipment and software.

Prerequisites: Graduate students, post-docs, and professionals working in hydrology, geology, ecology and geophysics are invited to participate. No prior experience in geophysics is required.
