The subsurface is where most of the available freshwater is stored; in the United States, groundwater is the primary source of water for over 50 percent of Americans, and roughly 95 percent for those in rural areas. Cleaning up the surface from industrial and nuclear wastes is quite challenging. A major impediment in studying processes in the subsurface and in managing resources is that it is difficult to achieve accurate and reliable imaging, i.e., identification of properties, of geologic formations.
