Leader: Professor Jim Cull

Clayton Second semester 2003 (Day)
Clayton Second semester 2004 (Day)

Synopsis: This subject aims to give a broad introduction to electrical methods for students interested in the practical application of physics and mathematics for geophysical surveys (including geotechnical studies, groundwater and mineral exploration). Students will gain an understanding of both galvanic and inductive methods for mapping the electrical characteristics. Introductory topics will include basic resistivity, self potential, and induced polarisation techniques. These topics will provide a foundation for electromagnetic methods including time domain techniques (TEM) and ground penetrating radar (GPR).
