Geophysics Field Camps

For a few days in May 2022, the students had the opportunity to try several geophysical methods in the parc Louis Bourget and the Pyramids de Vidy, closeby the Leman lake. Electrical Resistivity Tomography (ERT), Electro-Magnetic (EM), Gravimetry, GPS, Ground-Penetrating Radar (GPR) were nonetheless introduced. They acquired their own data on the field and processed them in the computer lab.
