Near Surface Geophysics for Hydrology Workshop
August 15 – 19, 2016 || Laramie, WY

Early Bird Registration Deadline: June 1st

Regular Registration Deadline: June 15th  

Over the past 10 years, near surface geophysics has become very accessible to non-experts, due to the development of reliable, easy-to-use instrumentation and intuitive, user-friendly software. As a result, new opportunities exist for applying near surface geophysical techniques to problems of watershed hydrology and critical zone processes. The Hands-on Workshop, “Near-Surface Geophysics for Hydrology” will introduce participants to several key methods of near-surface geophysics and their application to hydrology and critical zone processes. 

Techniques covered will include:

  • Seismic refraction
  • Ground Penetrating Radar
  • Electrical resistivity
  • Magnetics
  • Electromagnetic Induction
  • Borehole Geophysical Logging
  • Nuclear Magnetic Resonance

Hosted by the Wyoming Center for Environmental Hydrology & Geophysics and CUAHSI, the course will combine lecture and hands-on instruction with state-of-the-practice geophysical equipment and software.

Graduate students, post-docs, and professionals working in hydrology, geology, ecology and geophysics are invited to participate. No prior experience in geophysics is required.

The course will be held at the University of Wyoming in Laramie, WY. Course tuition, facilities costs, catered lunches and light refreshments, and transportation to/from field sites are included in the registration fee.

Visit the event website for more information and to register.

A very limited number of student travel grants are available on a first come, first served basis to help defray the cost of travel to the course. Contact Elizabeth Tran at for more information.
