1st Indian

Near Surface Geophysics
Conference & Exhibition

(International Conference & Exhibition)

28th - 29th November, 2019, New Delhi, India

Themes And Topics


Following themes broadly describe the focus areas of deliberations, with a certain degree of overlapping. The minimum coverage topics of conference are:

  • Engineering Geophysics - application in geotechnical investigations, site characterization, tunnel route studies, bridge foundation studies etc.
  • Water Resources Geophysics - hydrogeophysics & hydrogeology, climate, contamination survey, etc.
  • Mining Geophysics - Mineral Exploration, Geosciences for surface mining and safety, open cut mining, slope stability, tailings dam, etc.
  • Archaeological Geophysics - Geophysics for archaeology and cultural heritage
  • Dam Geophysics - Geophysics for investigation of dams and appurtenant structures
  • Geohazards and Disaster Mitigation - quick clay, landslide, liquefaction, earthquake, volcanic eruption, tsunami, ground subsidence etc.
  • Petroleum Exploration – improving deep images by understanding near-surface.
  • Shallow marine eosciences
  • Geophysics for forensics detection

The methods in focus are as under:

  • Seismic (Refraction, Shallow Reflection, MASW, ReMi)
  • Electrical (ERI, VES, IP, GRP)
  • Electromagnetic, Magnetotelluric
  • Ground Penetrating Radar
  • Gravity & Magnetic
  • Borehole Geophysics (Well Logging, Tomography, Crosshole/ Downhole)
  • Other Geophysical Methods - Radiometry, Thermal, etc.
  • Marine Geophysics Methods- SBP, SSS etc.
  • New Emerging Technologies and Instrument Development
