2.3.2 Geophysical methods — seismic surveying

Geophysical survey methods use measurements made at or near the Earth's surface to investigate the subsurface geology. The most widely used geophysical method is seismic reflection surveying; a rapid and highly cost-effective way of gathering data.

A seismic source (produced either by the explosive release of compressed air in a shallow borehole, or a heavy pad vibrated hydraulically at the surface) generates seismic waves that travel through the ground (

1 Overview

As you walk down the street one day, you hear a voice from somewhere behind you that seems to be discussing this course. It says:

‘My dad's tutor's no joker, and he told me the TMA's going to hit home with a bang.’

You turn to find the face behind the voice, which is a gravelly Glaswegian baritone, but the man has gone, leaving you to ponder what he has said. Let us call his sentence ex

Introduction

Earthquakes shake the ground surface, can cause buildings to collapse, disrupt transport and services, and can cause fires. They can trigger landslides and tsunami - in short, earthquakes can be very destructive. In this course you will look at why, where and what happens when they occur and also at how earthquakes are assessed qualitatively and quantitatively.
