Geophysical field campaign in India

A team of geophysical scientists from iEES Paris, METIS, and GEOPS, in collaboration with the Indian Institute of Science (Bangalore) and the Indo French Cell for Water Sciences (LMI CEFIRSE) performed a field campaign in the agricultural catchment of Berambadi in November 2019. The objective was to characterize the spatial heterogeneity of regolith properties by combining several methods: electrical resistivity tomography, seismic tomography, and audio-magnetotelluric soundings. This campaign was supported by EQUIPEX CRITEX.
