Application of airborne geophysical methods to the near surface environment

Session ID#: 25155

Session Description:
The use of airborne geophysical methods has exploded in recent years from their traditional use in mineral exploration to hydrologic studies, natural hazard assessment, ice and permafrost mapping, contaminant tracking, and geologic mapping. The increased use of multi-method airborne platforms, advanced processing techniques, and new stochastic and deterministic inversion methodologies are pushing the capabilities of airborne surveys in resolving near-surface structure. We welcome contributions that highlight advances in airborne instrumentation, processing, modeling, and inversion. We particularly invite studies that present novel uses of airborne methods or highlight an integrated approach where geological, hydrological, or geochemical data are coupled with airborne data to address process-oriented questions.
