September 27-28, 2012
Hilton Garden Inn, Champaign, Illinois
Dr. Ahmed Ismail talks about data
acquisition with previous short course
attendees in the field.
This two-day short course at the University of Illinois offers the opportunity to learn about the fundamental theory and applications of applied geophysics from experienced practitioners. Theory and application will be integrated with hands-on field experience and demonstrations of data processing on real data sets.
The course will provide an introduction to the theory, field operation,
data processing/interpretation, and application of:
• Seismic refraction
• Electrical resistivity
• Ground penetrating radar
• Downhole logging methods
• Multi-channel analysis of surface waves
Who Should Attend?
Practicing engineers, consultants, geologists, drillers, engineering geologists, archaeologists, and others responsible for development or evaluation of site characterization studies that might benefit from the application of modern geophysical methoods. Academic faculty and students will learn methods that could be applied to cross-disciplinary research.
Participation will fulfill the requirements for 1.29 CEU's through the University of Illinois.
Online registration will be available soon. To register now print and
