Martin Roseveare's insight:

Lots of interesting work tied up in this. At the same time, the linkage between soil hydration, e.g. by rainfall, and bulk resistivity is not well understood.

Identifying Groundwater Contamination Using Resistivity Surveys at a Landfill near Maoming, China | Learn Science at Scitable

Identifying Groundwater Contamination Using Resistivity Surveys at a Landfill near Maoming, China | Learn Science at Scitable | Shallow Geophysics | Scoop.it
Can we remotely detect groundwater contamination? Is it possible to detect subsurface contamination from the surface without drilling boreholes or wells? Let's look at a heavily contaminated rural area in south China to help answer this question.

Search for King Harold's remains in Waltham Abbey to begin - Medieval Archives

Search for King Harold's remains in Waltham Abbey to begin - Medieval Archives | Shallow Geophysics | Scoop.it
The search for King Harold's remains will begin next week on the anniversary of his apparent death.
Martin Roseveare's insight:

I'm really not convinced this is a sensible use of geophysics; mapping graves in burial grounds is always difficult and finding a particular one is fraught with problems unless looking for something definite like a coffin or vault. In any case later burials will most certainly have obliterated any evidence of Harold's.

Martin Roseveare's insight:

The author's comment about magnetometry results on chalk being 'predictably rubbish' is unfortunately itself rubbish. It depends on a host of factors and many spectacular surveys have been acheived over chalk bedrock.
