Summary "A technique for visualizing Earth's subsurface at high resolution Hidden out of sight in Earth's subsurface are a range of geophysical structures, processes, and material movements. Muography is a passive and non-destructive remote sensing technique that allows the visualization of the internal structure of solid geological structures at high resolution, similar to X-ray radiography in human bodies. Muography: Exploring Earth's Subsurface with Elementary Particles explores the application of this imaging technique in the geosciences and how it can complement conventional geophysical observations. Volume highlights include: Principles of muography and pioneering works in the field Different approaches for muographic image processing Observing volcanic structures and activity with muography Using muography for geophysical exploration and mining engineering Potential environmental applications of muography Latest technological developments in muography The American Geophysical Union promotes discovery in Earth and space science for the benefit of humanity. Its publications disseminate scientific knowledge and provide resources for researchers, students, and professionals. Marketing"-- Provided by publisher
