A geophysical survey was conducted on four closed landfills in Albuquerque, NM, including electromagnetics, magnetics, and electrical resistivity tomography. By using these combined geophysical methods, we were able to provide a complete picture of subsurface conditions (including lateral extents, thickness of buried waste, and depth of cover material).
