Near Surface Geophysics for Hydrology Workshop


Near Surface Geophysics for Hydrology Workshop with WyCEHG and CUAHSI.

Laramie, WY

The Wyoming Center for Environmental Hydrology and Geophysics (WyCEHG) and CUAHSI will host a hands-on workshop on Near Surface Geophysics for Hydrology taking place September 20 - 22, 2018 in Laramie, WY. 

Over the past 10 years, near surface geophysics has become very accessible to non-experts, due to the development of reliable, easy-to-use instrumentation and intuitive, user-friendly software. As a result, new opportunities exist for applying near surface geophysical techniques to problems of watershed hydrology and critical zone processes. The Hands-on Workshop, “Near-Surface Geophysics for Hydrology” will introduce participants to several key methods of near-surface geophysics and their application to hydrology and critical zone processes. Techniques covered will include:

  • Seismic refraction
  • Ground Penetrating Radar
  • Electrical resistivity
  • Magnetics
  • Electromagnetic Induction
  • Borehole Geophysical Logging
  • Nuclear Magnetic Resonance

Graduate students, post-docs, and professionals working in hydrology, geology, ecology and geophysics are invited to participate. No prior experience in geophysics is required. The course will combine lecture and hands-on instruction with state-of-the-practice geophysical equipment and software.
