Abstract:

Results of a field reconnaissance of the geology and hydrologic conditions in the vicinity of the White Sands Missile Range, New Mexico, are presented. The findings are evaluated with respect to the selection of a site for an experimental VLF antenna which will be placed directly on the surface of the ground. Several rock types exposed on the missile range and various terrains are discussed. The most suitable of these is a cuesta area on the west flank of the San Andres Mountains exposing the San Andres limestone above the water table. Recommendations for more definitive geophysical evaluations of the area are presented. Author
