Karst Geophysics Short Workshop June 2013

Postby jspolk » Apr 29, 2013 12:19 am

Here is a NEW course for the WKU/Mammoth Cave Karst Field Studies program for 2013

Course Description: Electrical resistivity methods as a tool for investigations of karst phenomena

This course will provide a two-day overview of the electrical resistivity method as applied to investigations of surface and subsurface karst phenomena. A morning classroom session will briefly describe theory and practice of the electrical resistivity method and its relationship to other geophysical techniques. The classroom session will be followed by an afternoon and following morning of fieldwork in the vicinity of Bowling Green, where students will acquire hands-on experience in deployment of an AGI Supersting™ array over a known cave passage. Students will have an opportunity to enter the cave while in the field. When the survey is complete students will return to the classroom and participate in processing and interpretation of the resistivity data using EarthImager demo software.

Instructor: Dr. Lewis Land
Location: Mammoth Cave, KY
Course Dates: June 11 and 12
Cost: $100
