This three-day workshop will provide an overview of geophysical methods for permafrost characterization (i.e., depth, thickness, spatial extent) and monitoring (i.e., time-lapse imaging). The course comprises lectures, data-analysis exercises, and field surveys. Participants will gain practical field experience using a variety of geophysical instruments, including ground penetrating radar, electrical resistivity, passive seismic, and electromagnetic induction.
