The point of arithmetic and physics is intentionally stored to a minimal yet is defined qualitatively in the text. correct mathematical expressions are separated into packing containers to complement the text. The publication is profusely illustrated with many figures, images and line drawings, many by no means formerly released. Key resource literature is equipped in an in depth reference part; a listing of net addresses for key agencies can also be given in an appendix as a useful extra resource.
Covers new thoughts resembling Magnetic Resonance Sounding, managed- resource EM, shear-wave seismic refraction, and airborne gravity and EM techniques
Now comprises radioactivity surveying and extra discussions of down-hole geophysical equipment; hydrographic and Sub-Bottom Profiling surveying; and UneXploded Ordnance detection
Expanded to incorporate extra forensic, archaeological, glaciological, agricultural and bio-geophysical applications
Includes additional information on physio-chemical houses of geological, engineering and environmental materials
Takes a completely international approach
Companion site with extra assets on hand at www.wiley.com/go/reynolds/introduction2e
Accessible center textbook for undergraduates in addition to a terrific reference for professionals
The moment variation is perfect for college kids in need of a huge creation to the topic and can also be designed for training civil and geotechnical engineers, geologists, archaeologists and environmental scientists who want an outline of recent geophysical tools suitable to their self-discipline. whereas the 1st variation used to be the 1st textbook to supply this type of accomplished insurance of environmental geophysics, the second one version is much more some distance ranging by way of options, purposes and case histories.
