Geophysical methods are becoming a cost effective approach to providing answers to hydrogeologic questions associated with ground-water contamination. Geophysical methods applicable to hazardous waste site investigations can be broken into two categories: surface and subsurface methods. Surface methods offer the advantages of relatively little capital investment at the site and rapid collection of data over a horizontal area. Subsurface methods can be used only to investigate an area immediately around the borehole. However, subsurface methods provide excellent information and resolution for vertical changes in measured parameters. The report covers borehole geophysical methods and addresses problems of site characterization, contaminant plume detection and monitoring of contaminant plumes.
