Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This handy pocket-sized field guide provides practical information and assistance to anyone engaged in small-scale surveys on the ground. Fully revised and updated throughout , the Fourth Edition includes comprehensive updates on the used of GPR and GPS and new sections on surface wave seismic and towed array systems. This has become the standard text in this area for use in the field and the experience of the two authors will ensure the book retains its place as one of the most popular handbooks in applied geophysics.
  • Fully revised and updated to incorporate new developments in the field;
  • Focus on quality control of the acquisition of data and basic field interpretation;
  • User-friendly, accessible writing style;
  • Includes updates on Ground Penetrating Radar and the use of GPS;
  • New section on surface wave methods;
  • Additional material available on the companion website at: www.wiley.com/go/milsom/geophysics4e

Book News Annotation:

Milsom wrote the first three editions, for which no dates are cited, to help anyone involved in small-scale geophysical surveys. Eriksen is noted earlier, but comes on as a full co-author here. They present not a textbook, but a field guide, focusing almost entirely on practical procedures, and only delving into methodological or theoretical matters when absolutely necessary. They cover the gravity method; the magnetic method; radiometric surveys; general considerations regarding electric current methods; resistivity methods; self-potential and induced polarization surveys; electromagnetic methods; remote-sources electromagnetics; ground penetrating radar; seismic methods generally; seismic reflection and reflection; the seismic surface wave method; maps, mapping, and global positioning systems.
