FastTIMES article: Surface and Borehole NMR as a Characterization Tool for Managed Aquifer Recharge

Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) is a powerful technology for groundwater investigations, leveraging the same physics as medical MRI imaging to directly detect water and characterize subsurface hydrogeologic parameters. In geophysics, surface NMR methods can be used to non-invasively map groundwater aquifers and borehole logging NMR tools can be used to […]

USGS Resources and Video on NMR Borehole Logging

The USGS has lots of very useful information on borehole logging technologies, methods and online resources.  Below are two examples. NOTE: Although some of these resources show USGS staff using Vista Clara equipment, USGS does NOT endorse specific product solutions and none of these resources should be interpreted as an […]
