Lab Supervisor: Dr. Argyro Asvesta, Associate Professor of Mineralogy, Geochemistry and Petrology
The Applied Geophysics Lab supports the teaching and research activities of the Department in the corresponding scientific field.
The lab equipment consists of the following geophysical instruments:
- A special electrical resistance measurement device(ABEM Terrameter SAS 1000) with all ancillaries (electrodes and cables) to perform geoelectric depth measurement and mapping.
- A proton magnetometer EG & G Geometrics G-856 with all ancillaries.
The aim of the lab is to help students understand the practice of the main geophysical methods used to remotely define the structure and composition of the upper part of Earth’s crust. Using geophysical survey methods it is possible to explore and locate deposits and water horizon, define the mechanical properties of rocks, solve environmental issues, etc.
