Geophysics for environmental scientists

Geophysics for environmental scientists

Keele University 

11th - 15th May 2020

We would like to inform you that we are again running a NERC-funded 5-day residential 'geophysical skills development for environmental scientists' course, co-run with RSK Geophysics Ltd.

The Geological Society Accredited course is designed for 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.
It involves a five-day Keele-based workshop where attendees will learn theory, then undertake geophysical data collection, processing and integration of a range of near-surface geophysical instrumentation commonly used in environmental research (e.g., GPR, electrical resistivity, microgravity, electromagnetic and magnetic techniques, seismics, etc.).


The course, including residential accommodation, breakfast and lunch, is free for eligible PhD students and early career researchers - please see the Keele website for more information.

For a limited number of commercial employees, the course fee will be £400, with commercial attendees covering their expenses (free lunch will be provided). Fellows of the Geological Society will be eligible for a 10% discount.

Registration is open now - download an application form via the Keele website.
