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.

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
