Title:
Using geophysical methods to study the shallow subsurface at a sensitive alpine site, Niwot Ridge, Colorado Front Range, USA 
Abstract:
Shallow seismic refraction (SSR) and ground penetrating radar (GPR) are non-invasive geophysical techniques that enhance studies of the shallow subsurface deposits which control many geomorphic and biogeochemical processes. These techniques permit measuring the thickness and material properties of these deposits in sensitive alpine areas without using extensive pits and trenches that can impact current biogeospheric processes or distort them for future research. Application of GPR and SSR along...    »
