The content and insights presented here result from work done by Subsurface Insights staff in the field of electrical geophysics (under funding of different federal agencies and industry), from interactions between Subsurface Insights staff and scientists and operational staff in academia, government agencies and private industry and most importantly from papers published in peer reviewed journals and presentations at conferences. The insights presented here were made possible by research and efforts by hundreds (if not thousands) of geophysicists over the past thirty years, and Subsurface Insights gratefully acknowledges the electrical geophysical community.
