Earth & Atmospheric Science (EATS):
Why Geomatics Science?
More recently, the expertise in geophysical methods for exploration of minerals has been extended to the modern methods of environmental assessment, and to delineation of buried infrastructure in the urban environment. This recent development suggests that future urban and environment issues will benefit greatly by the combined technologies associated with geomatics and exploration geophysics.
An Environmental Test site with a known array of buried targets has been built at York University that is contributing significantly to the external recognition of the Department of Earth & Space Science & Engineering through its activities in Applied Geophysics and Geomatics Engineering.
