Geophysics 2006: Conference on Applied Geophysics
Matching Research Agency
Florida Department of Transportation
Students will coauthor and present research papers focused on non-destructive investigative technologies.
The principle objective of the conference is to demonstrate that geophysical technologies decrease costs and improve safety.
Graduate and undergraduate students will assist in the planning of the conference. They will also be responsible for the coordinating the electronic flow of conference papers (between authors/reviewers/editors), and will assist with the compilation of the conference proceedings. They will also coauthor and present papers. PI Anderson is the Publication Chair and serves on all main conference committees.
The main benefit is related to "technology transfer". The case studies and overview papers presented at Geophysics will encourage DOT engineers to use geophysical imaging technologies where appropriate.
|Non-destructive/and non-invasive imaging.|
Relationship to other Research/Projects
UMR faculties are engaged in a number of externally-funded projects that involve the non-destructive imaging of engineered structures and non-invasive site characterization.
Technology Transfer Activities
Expertise with respect to acquisition, processing, interpretation and application of geophysical technologies will be shared via publications and presentations.
