Geologic Mapping with Geophysics

Geophysics can be used to produce a three dimensional image of the subsurface.  Ground penetrating radar, resistivity, and seismic methods are ideal for mapping stratigraphic changes with depth.  Interpreting the geology of the subsurface can help us to better understand its hydrologic characteristics, identify potential hazards, and plan for land use.  3D GPR
