Use of gravity and magnetic exploration in ecological studies

© O.K. Tiapkin

The new geophysical direction-ecological geophysics was rather precisely allocated. It is extremely close to engineering geophysics. However now formal transferring of traditional hardware-methodical base (from engineering geophysics to ecological one) is impossible because of economic difficulties. In these conditions the role of "easy" geophysical methods (gravity and magnetic surveys in particular) grows in ecological investigations. It is shown that they are especially effective for ecological tectonic researches in industrial regions; and high-precision gravimetry confidently investigates intensive dangerous technogenic processes in mining areas.
