Applied Geophysics Laboratory

The Applied Geophysics Lab contains a number of geophysical systems suitable for both near-surface geological and environmental applications as well as deep Earth potential fields studies. We have a GSSI SIR-3000 ground penetrating radar system with 100 MHz, 400 MHz, and 500 MHz antennas. The Lab also maintains a 12-channel Geometrics SmartSeis field seismograph for seismic reflection and refraction investigations. For potential fields research we have a Geometrics G-858 portable cesium magnetometer and an older Geometrics proton precession magnetometer, a Scintrex Autograv gravity meter, and a Syscal multi-channel resistivity meter. Our systems are designed to be integrated with on-going research in field geophysics, tectonics, and sub-surface environmental studies.
