Course Aims

Res Section The “Geophysical Skills Development for Environmental Scientists” course is aimed at Postgraduate Research students and Early Career Researchers who wish to learn about the theory, practice and real-world application of environmental geophysics for research and career development.

  • A 5-day Keele-based workshop where attendees will learn the theory and practice of a range of near-surface geophysical instrumentation commonly used in environmental research (e.g., GPR, Electrical Resistivity Imaging, Microgravity, Electromagnetic and Magnetic techniques, etc).

The course is led by Drs Jamie Pringle & Ian Stimpson of the Applied and Environmental Geophysics Group at Keele University and Mr Tim Grossey of RSK STATS Ltd who have over fifty years experience of research and training in academic and industrial near-surface geophysics.

Student and academic early-career researcher places are fully funded (i.e., accommodation, course materials and transport are paid for during the course) and attendees can apply for funding support to help with the cost of getting to and from Keele University. Commercial attendees will need to pay a course fee and to cover their own expenses. Places are limited and popular, so please apply as soon as possible.
