Near-Surface Geophysics

Near-Surface Geophysics focuses on the development and application of any and all geophysical methods to study the near-surface region of the Earth, to advance the fundamental science of geophysical imaging (data acquisition, inversion, interpretation), and to address key questions about subsurface properties and processes.

Adventures of a Geophysicist - 7 short stories

The field of Near Surface Geophysics has a rich history of innovation in methods, instrumentation, and software. Some of this history is preserved in the publications and textbooks from our field, but many of the interesting back-stories about the people and groups that led to important developments in our field are often lost. To preserve some of this history, the Near Surface Geophysics section will share seven short stories written by Niels Christensen, Professor Emeritus at Aarhus University, one per month posted in our newsletter and linked for posterity on our website. The stories will also be published in ASEG's Preview magazine. You can find the background and the seven stories as they are released here


Google Maps - Near Surface Geophysics Map: submit your pin(s) for any of your present or past fieldsites for which a geophysical dataset exists. We just need your name, a location, name of geophysical method(s), and any other relevant information you want to provide (e.g. date of the dataset, additional methods, collaborators, etc…). The info can be submitted in two ways:

  1. add a pin directly to this shareable map, including a title, description, and link to data [search for the coordinates in the search box at the top of the map and select the option to ‘add pin’]
  2. Submit all relevant data to this form
