Episode 145: How to successfully interrogate the ground in noisy environments

Chester Weiss discusses the latest research from The Leading Edge to successfully use geophysical tools at well sites.

Chester shares the impact of well infrastructure on geophysical assessment, how to use EM successfully, the challenges of using near-surface, and the applicability of this research in other cluttered environments. Along with our conversation in episode 141 on the life cycle of a well, this episode will help provide the full geophysical picture of working at a well.

Chester Weiss is a Distinguished Member of the Technical Staff at Sandia National Laboratories.
