About this book

This book describes the application of non-destructive geophysical methods in subsurface archaeological features. Such non-destructive methods are magnetometry, electrical resistance, electromagnetic conductivity, magnetic susceptibility and ground penetrating radar. This book also includes the last improvements in instrumentation, data processing, and interpretations of the collected data sets leading to the rapid progress in geophysical applications in the field of archaeological investigations. The book also provides complete case-studies and archaeological interpretation obtained our results carried out in different localities around the world.

Reviews

“The wide breadth of this collection makes the book interesting to the casual archaeology enthusiast and the geophysicist interested in expanding the use of the techniques to new and varied problems. The wide range of areas and targets makes this a fascinating and highly educational read and could even serve as a text for this type of geophysical activity.” (Bob Avakian, The Leading Edge, Vol. 38 (10), October, 2019)
