Near-surface Applied Geophysics

Research Interests

Mark Everett's research focuses on near-surface applied geophysics, especially electromagnetic, ground-penetrating radar, magnetic and electrical resistivity tomography methods for solving environmental, engineering, archaeological, water, and resource extraction problems. Current work includes both practical case histories, various ecohydrogeophysical projects associated with the Texas Water Observatory, and theoretical studies in fundamental topics such as long-range-dependent heterogeneity, electromagnetic vortices, and non-equilibrium statistical mechanics. Teaching interests include applied geophysics instruction through traditional lectures and outdoor field experiences, as well as inverse theory, and gravity and magnetics. 

Research Themes

  • Near-surface applied geophysics 
  • Controlled-source electromagnetics and ground-penetrating radar 
  • Archaeological prospection and civil engineering geophysics
  • Geophysical responses of complex geological systems 
  • Inductive reasoning and time series analysis
