Resources

In our resources section we provide access to pdfs of research papers prepared by RIL personnel, Technical Summary and Geophysical Application sheets and details of how to order your own copy the internationally-acclaimed textbook ‘An introduction to applied and environmental geophysics’, written by John Reynolds.

In order to provide you with the best technical advice, our extensive commercial experience is underpinned by research that is often undertaken in conjunction with university research groups. Our research is frequently published in peer-reviewed international journals. Where possible, we have provided pdf downloads of our publications. If you are interested in a particular publication for which there is no download, please call us now on +44(0)1352 756196 or email enquiries@reynolds-international.co.uk for more details.

RIL MD Prof. John Reynolds is the author of the internationally-acclaimed textbook ‘An introduction to applied and environmental geophysics’. The second edition was published by John Wiley & Sons Ltd on April 15th 2011.

We also provide a number of free, downloadable Technical Summary Sheets that describe the basic principles of common geophysical site investigation techniques, along with a comprehensive set of Geophysical Application Sheets (coming soon) that describe real-world examples of how geophysical techniques can help you with your ground investigation.
