Geophysical techniques are an increasingly important tool for scientific investigations, environmental planning, and resource management. During 2005–10 the U.S. Geological Survey Texas Water Science Center greatly expanded its capabilities of using surface and borehole geophysical techniques to gain insights into how groundwater systems work and the occurrence and distribution of certain contaminants. Geophysical techniques provide a relatively quick and inexpensive means to characterize the subsurface hydrology and lithology.
