Short CV Dr Supri Soengkono is a geophysicist with strong geological background and has more than 25 years professional working experience. He has been involved in education, research and applications of geophysical techniques for the explorations of geothermal and mineral resources, near surface interpretations (geotechnical and archaelogical studies) and the investigations of basement structures and complex volcanic areas. His main expertise are magnetic, gravity, and dc-resistivity methods, but he also has extended experience with many other geophysical methods, including EM techniques, seismic refraction, analyses of digital topographic data and assessments of geothermal surface manifestations.
