Green,1 and David A. Ferrill1 1Department of Earth, Material, and Planetary Sciences Geosciences and Engineering. Geophysical studies also determine the nature and extent of potential hazards and the physical parameters that are vital to successful engineering and construction activities.

These types of studies are ideal for use in heavily populated areas, such as metropolitan areas, where many of today's environmental and engineering issues arise.

Book Description. Site characterization is a fundamental step towards the proper design, construction and long term performance of all types of geotechnical projects, ranging from foundation, excavation, earth dams, embankments, seismic hazards, environmental issues, tunnels, near and offshore structures.

Site characterization is a elementary step within the path of the correct design, improvement and long time interval effectivity of all types of geotechnical duties, ranging from foundation, excavation, earth dams, embankments, seismic hazards, environmental factors, tunnels, near and offshore buildings.

Geophysical methods are used increasingly for characterization and monitoring at remediation sites in fractured-rock aquifers. The complex heterogeneity of fractured rock poses enormous challenges to groundwater remediation professionals, and new methods are needed to cost-effectively infer fracture and fracture-zone locations, orientations and properties, and to develop conceptual site Cited by: 6.

Malehmir, T. Dahlin, in Advances in Geophysics, 5 Conclusions. Geophysical methods have proven to possess great potential for detailed characterization and delineation of subsurface geology in settings with geohazards that may lead to disastrous failures when triggered by any of a variety of sources such as heavy rain, earthquake, volcanic activity, and erosion.

Geophysical methods have been used for characterization of hydrogeol ogic conditions and/or contaminant distributions at the Hanford Site since the mid- to lates. A review of these geophysical methods is presented in two parts: 1) shallow surface-based geophysical methods and 2) borehole geophysical-logging methods.

Comina, S. Foti, L. Socco & C. Strobbia. An option for controlling contaminant migration from plumes and buried waste sites is to construct a subsurface barrier of a low-permeability material. The successful application of subsurface barriers requires processes to verify the emplacement and effectiveness of barrier and to monitor the.
