Geophysics in Geotechnical Practice

Course Outline.

The seminar will increase the awareness regarding the correct use of geophysics for noninvasive investigations, structural and geological mapping and ground modelling.

Geophysics can provide an in depth and continuous understanding of both surface and subsurface conditions and can also reduce the risk of underground hazards and optimise budgets..

Course Contents.

  • How to choose the best techniques

  • Key points when scheduling geophysics

  • Using geophysics to manage risk

  • Overview of surface techniques

  • Overview of down-hole techniques

  • Advantages and limitations of techniques

  • Using suites of tools to enhance the data

  • Data handling and interpretation

  • Advances in geophysics

  • Case Studies
