Basic Exploration Geophysics introduces geophysical methods used to explore for natural resources and to survey earth structure for purposes of geological and engineering knowledge. These methods include seismic refraction and reflection surveying, gravity and magnetic field surveying, electrical resistivity and electromagnetic field surveying, and geophysical well logging. Modern field procedures and instruments are covered, as well as data processing and interpretation methods, including graphical methods. All basic surveying methods are described step-by-step, and illustrated by practical examples. The text is well illustrated.
