Abstract:

The primary objectives of this study were to 1 determine the utility of radar in the compilation of geological reconnaissance maps, 2 define and analyze radar-linears joint systems and faults and infer the nature of the tectonic forces responsible for certain types of local structures, 3 examine the effect of radar look-direction direction orthogonal to ground track of the aircraft and determine if there is a factor of directional dependency with radar systems, and 4 evaluate the potential of radar as a single geological reconnaissance tool in the tropical environment and what application these imaging systems may possess for future geological reconnaissance surveys in similar geographic areas.
