Environmental Geophysics and Hydrology

Clean water is a very important resource, one that is becoming increasingly scarce throughout the world.  Geophysical methods can be used to locate subsurface water resources, monitor remediation of contaminated sites, and track pathways of groundwater.  By utilizing the physical changes of the subsurface caused by water and contamination, geophysics can play a key role in ensuring a sustainable supply of clean water for future generations.  Tahquamenon Falls
