his new edition of the well-established Kearey and Brooks text is fully
updated to reflect the important developments in geophysical methods
since the production of the previous edition. The broad scope of
previous editions is maintained, with even greater clarity of
explanations from the revised text and extensively revised figures.
Each of the major geophysical methods is treated systematically
developing the theory behind the method and detailing the
instrumentation, field data acquisition techniques, data processing and
interpretation methods. The practical application of each method to
such diverse exploration applications as petroleum, groundwater,
engineering, environmental and forensic is shown by case histories.
mathematics required in order to understand the text is purposely kept
to a minimum, so the book is suitable for courses taken in geophysics
by all undergraduate students. It will also be of use to postgraduate
students who might wish to include geophysics in their studies and to
all professional geologists who wish to discover the breadth of the
subject in connection with their own work.
