The broadscope of previous editions is maintained, with even greater clarityof explanations from the revised text and extensively revisedfigures. Each of the major geophysical methods is treatedsystematically developing the theory behind the method anddetailing the instrumentation, field data acquisition techniques,data processing and interpretation methods. The practicalapplication of each method to such diverse exploration applicationsas petroleum, groundwater, engineering, environmental and forensicis shown by case histories. The mathematics required in order to understand the text ispurposely kept to a minimum, so the book is suitable for coursestaken in geophysics by all undergraduate students. It will also beof use to postgraduate students who might wish to includegeophysics in their studies and to all professional geologists whowish to discover the breadth of the subject in connection withtheir own work.
