Details: Product description Introduction to Applied Geophysics covers the fundamental principles and common methods of exploration geophysics, preparing students for field study of the shallow subsurface. Offering a chapter on each of the most common methods of exploration, the text explains in detail how each method is performed and discusses that method’s geologic, engineering, and environmental applications. In addition to ample examples, illustrations, and applications throughout, each chapter concludes with a problem set. The text is also accompanied by the Field Geophysics Software Suite, an innovative CD-ROM that allows students to experiment with refraction and reflection seismology, gravity, magnetics, electrical resistivity, and ground-penetrating radar methods of exploration. From the Author FYI: the first printing of the book came with a CD-ROM. The Mac software on that disk will not work with current machines; you can update those copies to ones that should work using the updaters at . The second printing corrects some typos but comes with a DVD (stated as such on the cover) with the current version of the software. About the Author H. Robert Burger is Achilles Professor of Geology at Smith College in Northampton, Massachusetts. His research focuses on the evolution of ancient mountain belts in southwestern Montana, applying geophysics to further elucidate the structural evolution of the Connecticut Valley in Massachusetts, and applies Geographic Information Systems (GIS) to mitigate natural hazards. Anne F. Sheehan is Professor of Geological Sciences and Fellow of the Cooperative Institute for Research in Environmental Sciences (CIRES) at the University of Colorado at Boulder. Her research focuses on the study of the crust and upper mantle of the Earth and its relation to tectonic deformation. She teaches undergraduate and graduate courses in geological sciences and geophysics, and has served as Director of the University of Colorado Geophysics Ph.D. program. Craig H. Jones is Professor of Geological Sciences and Fellow of the Cooperative Institute for Research in Environmental Sciences (CIRES) at the University of Colorado at Boulder. His research has focused on understanding the tectonics of continental areas, especially the western U. S., and on obtaining geophysical observations of those features. He teaches undergraduate and graduate courses in geology and geophysics and has developed and maintained geophysical software for more than 15 years.
