Reading-> I read Chapter 15. Chapter 15 Questions 15.8 a) Resistivity- The resistivity method measures the electric potential between two electrodes driven into the ground. The data is used to figure out groundwater flow potential, as well as subsurface info like depth to bedrock/water table, change in soil types, contaminant levels, and aquifer boundaries. b) Seismic- The seismic method measures the speed of introduced seismic waves as measure by geophones at different distances and uses that information to determine the depth to bedrock. c) Magnetometry- The magnetometry method measures the magnetic fields in the subsurface from which you can tell things like where metal drums or underground storage tanks are buried or other ferromagnetic materials since these materials upset the earth’s natural magnetic field. d) Electromagnetic- The electromagnetic conductivity method measures the average conductivity over the effective depth of a survey and from that data information like

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
