Applied Geophysics in Periglacial Environments by C. Hauck,C. Kneisel

By C. Hauck,C. Kneisel

Many study difficulties in cryospheric technological know-how, equivalent to worldwide warming-induced permafrost degradation, require information regarding the subsurface, that are imaged utilizing geophysical tools. This e-book is a pragmatic consultant to the appliance of geophysical ideas in mountainous and polar terrain, the place the cruel surroundings and nature of the subsurface pose specific demanding situations. It begins with an creation to the most geophysical tools after which demonstrates their program in periglacial environments via numerous case stories - written by means of a crew of foreign specialists. the ultimate a part of the e-book offers a chain of reference tables with standard values of geophysical parameters for periglacial environments. This guide is a worthwhile source for glaciologists, geomorphologists and geologists requiring an advent to geophysical suggestions, in addition to for geophysicists missing adventure of making plans and undertaking box surveys in chilly regions.
