  • Focuses on the use of near-surface geophysics for agricultural applications
  • Describes three common near-surface geophysical methods that can be employed for agricultural purposes
  • Provides detailed examples and case histories of agricultural applications for these geophysical methods
  • Presents theoretical insight on soil electrical conductivity measurement
  • Includes geophysical methods not typically used for agriculture currently but with possible future applications
  • Summary

    Precision farming, site infrastructure assessment, hydrologic monitoring, and environmental investigations — these are just a few current and potential uses of near-surface geophysical methods in agriculture. Responding to the growing demand for this technology, the Handbook of Agricultural Geophysics supplies a clear, concise overview of near-surface geophysical methods that can be used in agriculture and provides detailed descriptions of situations in which these techniques have been employed.
