Memoirs of a Hayseed Physicist by Peter Martel


Part 35:
My First University:
The practical side of my studies was the summer work in the bush. I learned how to do resistivity surveys to find the depth and size of gypsum deposits, electromagnetic surveys looking for metallic deposits, gravimetric surveys to look for dense deposits of heavy ore and seismic surveys to find the depths of various layers above potential pools of oil.
