NEAR SURFACE GEOPHYSICS IMAGES GENERATED WITH MATLAB AND SEISMIC UNIX
Seismic Unix is a set of coordinated programs from Colorado School
of Mines Center for Wave Propagation. The programs run on Unix or Linux
operrating systems. I use Seismic Unix to display and analyze both shallow seismic ground penetrating radar data. Click here for Seismic Unix homepage.
Near Surface Geophysics is geophysics applied to the shallow depths, typically depths less than 100 meters or 300 ft. There is lots of information on the web about this subject. Professional orgainzations include the Environmental and Engineering Geophysics Society and the Near-Surface Geophysics Section of the Society of Exploration Geophysicists .

This page was created by Dr. Charles T. Young, Associate Professor of Geophysical Engineering at Michigan Technological University. You can contact him at email@example.com. Details of the Matlab programs or data can be provided upon request.
The examples here are from research and from course work with
