USGS Groundwater Information: Hydrogeophysics Branch
This three-day workshop will provide an overview of geophysical methods for permafrost characterization (i.e., depth, thickness, spatial extent) and monitoring (i.e., time-lapse imaging).
The course comprises lectures, data-analysis exercises, and field surveys. Participants will gain practical field experience using a variety of geophysical instruments, including
Participants will analyze field data and gain hands-on experience using state-of-the-practice software for data processing and visualization.
The target audience for the course includes hydrologists, engineers, environmental scientists, and geologists interested in geophysical methods for characterization of permafrost. No prior experience with geophysical methods is required. The course is open to USGS, other Federal agency, State, and University personnel or students.
Instructors include scientists from the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) and Army Corps of Engineers Cold Regions Research and Engineering Laboratory (CRREL):
