An Introduction to Applied and Environmental Geophysics,2nd Edition, describes the rapidly developing fieldof near-surface geophysics. The book covers a range of applicationsincluding mineral, hydrocarbon and groundwater exploration, andemphasises the use of geophysics in civil engineering and inenvironmental investigations.  Following on from theinternational popularity of the first edition, this new, revised,and much expanded edition contains additional case histories, anddescriptions of geophysical techniques not previously included insuch textbooks.

The level of mathematics and physics is deliberately kept to aminimum but is described qualitatively within the text. Relevant mathematical expressions are separated into boxes tosupplement the text.  The book is profusely illustrated withmany figures, photographs and line drawings, many never previouslypublished. Key source literature is provided in an extensivereference section; a list of web addresses for key organisations isalso given in an appendix as a valuable additional resource.

  • Covers new techniques such as Magnetic Resonance Sounding,Controlled- Source EM, shear-wave seismic refraction, and airbornegravity and EM techniques
  • Now includes radioactivity surveying and more discussions ofdown-hole geophysical methods; hydrographic and Sub-BottomProfiling surveying; and UneXploded Ordnance detection
  • Expanded to include more forensic, archaeological,glaciological, agricultural and bio-geophysical applications
  • Includes more information on physio-chemical properties ofgeological, engineering and environmental materials
  • Takes a fully global approach
  • Companion website with additional resources available at www.wiley.com/go/reynolds/introduction2e
  • Accessible core textbook for undergraduates as well as anideal reference for industry professionals

The second edition is ideal for students wanting a broadintroduction to the subject and is also designed for practisingcivil and geotechnical engineers, geologists, archaeologists andenvironmental scientists who need an overview of modern geophysicalmethods relevant to their discipline. While the first edition wasthe first textbook to provide such a comprehensive coverage ofenvironmental geophysics, the second edition is even more farranging in terms of techniques, applications and casehistories.

From the Publisher:

This book represents the first introductory text to describe the developing field of environmental geophysics. A significant portion of the material is new, as well as case histories which have never been published before. The geographical basis of the case histories is worldwide, with examples originating from Australia to North America, from Arctic Canada to the Antarctic, from Europe to China. The level of mathematics and physics is kept to a minimum but is described qualitatively within the text. Particular attention is paid to geophysical survey design and line optimization techniques. The book also covers the rapidly developing geophysical field techniques and consequent computer-based data processing problems.

Review:

"A course using it will provide as much geophysics as many want or need, he says, but can also establish a foundation for more advanced courses. It discusses some topics rarely covered in introductory texts, such as geophysical survey design and line optimization techniques, image processing of potential field data, recent developments in high-resolution seismic reflection profiling, and electrical resistivity sub-surface imaging." (Book News, 1 August 2011)
