Syllabus for GEO4120 - Near-Surface Geophysics - 2013
The lecture notes delivered by the lecturer(s) on Fronter during the course serve as the only references for the final written exam. The reference textbook below is however highly recommended to complement the corresponding parts of the lectures (e.g., explanations), especially for students not attending the latter. Chapters referred to are not used in the same order during the lectures.
