Introduction

Geophysics play a vital role in global economics. However, geoscientists use different geophysical methods and techniques to solve humanitarian problems while also solving archaeological problems. Programs like Geoscientists Without Borders fund geophysicists so that they can use their knowledge and expertise to create a positive impact to the world.

Archaeology

Habitat Management

In 2016 ground penetrating radar was used to map [3]

Volcano Preparedness

Starting in September 2019, scientists in Mexico are using GPR, refraction seismic, HVSR and geoelectrics methods with other scientific techniques and methods to update the geologic hazard maps and to implement an early warning system to safeguard human life in the surrounding areas of the Pico de Orizaba volcano. Most notably, this volcano presents lahar hazards for the villages and natives that use the nearby Jampa river. [11]
