During the fall semester, I annually teach a course in field geophysics for upper level undergraduates and graduate students. Because there is a field element to several seismic courses taught here, the methods included in my course are generally limited to ground penetrating radar (GPR), electromagnetic induction (EMI), magnetometry, and gravity. Seismic methods are not excluded but are only used if called for in a particular field study.

The most difficult aspect of the course is identifying teaching sites. In order to keep students motivated, it is important to plan field studies and acquire and interpret data at sites that...
