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

By C. Hauck,C. Kneisel

Many study difficulties in cryospheric technological know-how, resembling international warming-induced permafrost degradation, require information regarding the subsurface, that are imaged utilizing geophysical tools. This ebook is a realistic advisor to the applying of geophysical thoughts in mountainous and polar terrain, the place the tough surroundings and nature of the subsurface pose specific demanding situations. It begins with an creation to the most geophysical tools after which demonstrates their software in periglacial environments via numerous case reports - written by means of a crew of overseas specialists. the ultimate a part of the ebook offers a sequence of reference tables with ordinary values of geophysical parameters for periglacial environments. This instruction manual is a worthy source for glaciologists, geomorphologists and geologists requiring an advent to geophysical innovations, in addition to for geophysicists missing adventure of making plans and undertaking box surveys in chilly regions.
