Abstract (in english)
   Generally, near surface geophysical techniques are widely used for outlining , the shallow subsurface features. High resolution microgravity measurements approved its applicability for detecting the near-surface caves and other shallow features. The current paper is aimed at demonstrating the link between geophysical and engineering parameters of the soil and rocks in one package required by engineers. These combined parameters can provide a complete view for near surface fratures at any site before starting constructions.
