Applied High-Resolution Geophysical Methods: Offshore Geoengineering Hazards by P.K. Trabant
English | September 28, 2013 | ISBN: 9400964951 | 265 pages | PDF | 11 MB
The discipline encompassing the use of high-resolution geophysics for obtaining geoengineering survey data has evolved rapidly over the past decades to become an interdisciplinary subject encompassing the fields of Geophysics, engineering, geology, marine geology, oceanography, and civil engineering. While high-resolution geophysical surveys are routinely performed offshore today, this has been so only since the late 1960s. High-resolution geophysical methods are employed in the offshore environment to obtain a comprehensive picture of the sea-floor mor phology and underlying shallow stratigraphy. .
