Geophysics and Geo-technics
Geophysics is basically a natural science under which physical properties and the processes of Earth are studied. It also includes the study of surrounding space environment. In it the use of quantitative methods for their analysis is used. Its practical applications include exploration of mineral deposits. Also the subsurface structures can also be mapped which helps in the investigation of pollution and landfills. To tackle the Ecological issues, Natural Geophysics comes into play under which standard of geophysics is used. It incorporates Hydro geochemistry, Environmental Mineralogy, Soil Mechanics, Hydro geophysics etc.
The interpretation, acquisition, and the use of Knowledge of the Earth’s crust and earth material to overcome the engineering problems by the use of engineering principles and the scientific methods is known as Geo-technics. Geo-technics is very useful at the early stage civil engineering project. It helps in the prevention of environmental risk due to human activities and other risk management.
The issue of human activities related to radioactive waste management has become a topical issue throughout the world with the development of nuclear energy application. Like Uranium mines and their inseparable satellites – radioactive waste repositories. The content of hazardous substances that migrate by air, dissolve into water bodies, or filter into groundwater differs from ordinary mine waste repositories. So, here comes the role of Geophysics and Geo-technics to overcome these problems.
