Irrigation Insights 7 - Geophysics for the irrigation industry

Date Issued:2009-08-17


Geophysical techniques involve the use of ground-based and airborne geophysical devices to measure physical properties of the earth. They can assist in the planning and management of irrigation developments by identifying the size and depth of aquifers, the connectivity between surface and ground water, the salinity of aquifers, the mineral composition and depth of the soil and the chances of successful water boring. Most geophysics applied to irrigation is in the form of imaging conducted
