Applied Geophysics - Research

Applied geophysics is concerned with investigating the Earth's crust and near-surface (<100m) for a wide range of purposes to improve the well being of human kind such as contamination remediation, energy and martial resource exploration, safe and efficient engineering infrastructure, and natural hazard mitigation, etc. Our Applied Geophysics group has worked on projects to determine the water content in natural soils, unexplored ore detection, the effect of topography and surface roughness on electromagnetic wave propagation, environmental site characterization at a variety of remediation sites, numerical simulation of wave propagation in a wide range of complex media, geophysical surveys for groundwater resource management.

Commonly we conduct research in the following areas:

Seismic Investigations

Electrical Resistivity Imaging

Magnetic Studies

Gravity Investigations

Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR)
