David Fitterman earned a Geophysical Engineer degree from the Colorado School of Mines (1969) and a Ph.D. in Geophysics from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (1975). During a 35-year career with the U.S. Geological Survey he worked on geophysical investigations related to ground-water studies, environmental site characterization, geothermal and mineral resource assessment, and earthquake prediction. After retirng from USGS in 2009, he established a geophysical consulting practice specializing in ground and airborne electromagnetic methods applied to ground-water, saltwater intrusion, and environmental investigations. He has taught several short courses on transient electromagnetic sounding …
