Several geophysical techniques are available for the investigation and characterization of shallow subsurface. Most commonly used are electrical methods, seismic refraction and reflection methods, multichannel analysis of surface waves, gravity, magnetic, electromagnetic induction and ground penetrating radar. Mars is the one of the terrestrial planet, under discussion from several years due to interesting facts obtained from surface features including the evidences for the presence of water. Surface features on Mars include plans, mountains, impact crater, lava flows and dust cover.
