These studies are mostly newer applications of the engineering geophysical methods on dams, focusing mainly on construction and operation phases, including quality control of compacted soils, investigation of leakage in an earth dam, evaluation of an aged concrete dam, geophysical monitoring program in a newly-constructed dam, and geophysical monitoring for reservoir sediment … Geophysical methods can be used to determine depth to bedrock, nature of overburden materials and near surface structures such as sinkholes, cavities, voids, faults and boulders [2]. There is a growing demand for using non-destructive geophysical techniques to internally image dam condition and facilitate the early detection of anomalous phenomena. Geophysical methods have a wide range of application within archaeology in general, but their explicit use for solving geoarchaeological questions is principally related to three major aspects: the determination of sediment stratigraphy, the mapping of soil disturbance related to human occupation and the reconstruction of palaeolandscapes .
