From the Publisher:

The publisher, Matrix Multimedia, is proud to present a groundbreaking, fully interactive CD-ROM to support self-directed learning in this field. This practical guide provides easy access to key information about the application of many different geophysical techniques. It is all within easy reach in this Windows TM disc, containing a rich resource section, and many case studies to support the chapters dealing with the theory of Geophysics applied to environmental investigations. There are three separate search engines to assist with navigation, and the chapters are color coded to enhance orientation within the reference. This disc is an Autorun CD-ROM, so one can simply pop it into the CD-ROM player, and once installed, it will launch automatically every time. This disc is written at a level suitable for use as a study tool for junior and intermediate university students, as well as being suitable as a field guide for junior to intermediate field geologists and geophysicists. You can even use the disc as a teaching tool for clients or potential clients who need to understand the process of undertaking a survey more completely.

These well-known authors make learning easy and fun, and there are many excellent visuals, audio tips and animations to help the user understand the concepts presented. You can work at your own pace, thus customizing your learning experience. The resource will be updated, likely as a web-enabled product in the next edition; thus this product will build on the current foundation of content to remain on the cutting edge of technology. This is not intended to be an exhaustive resource, but the reference section is very thorough, and thus you are capably referred to additional relevant information for more in-depth study. You will find some sponsor multimedia presentations on the disc to assist you with practical choices for equipment and software. Three of the sponsors have technical multimedia presentations including video and animations that even allow you to go straight to their Internet site directly from within the CD-ROM! This is a great way to check out current equipment availability if you are planning a project.

To build technical excellence in environmental geophysics investigations, join us for this entertaining multimedia experience. Available worldwide (English edition available-other language versions may be developed if the publisher receives adequate indication of interest).

From the Author:

This CD-ROM provides a quick reference to information required to use geophysics sensibly and efficiently in a wide variety of environmental and geotechnical applications. The basic theory and instrumentation for Geophysics in this field are described and illustrated with examples which incorporate excellent graphics and animations. The main learning objectives center on applications, and to this end, numerous case histories and examples of correct and incorrect usage of the techniques are presented. Technically, the reference is at an introductory level and suitable for use in general training courses in the environmental and geotechnical field, but it is also designed as a computer desktop reference for environmental scientists and engineers seeking guidance with this confusing and poorly utilized geophysical sub-discipline.
