Abstract:

Progress toward the development of an electromagnetic pulse sounding probe for the detection and delineation of geological anomalies, primarily in a hard rock medium, is reported. This report covers research performed on Contract HO210042 during the period 24 February 1971 to 23 February 1972. Analytical studies on design data for the probe and on the scattering by planar and spherical contrasts are summarized. Successful measurements made using a first generation version of the probe on conducting and dielectric cylindrical targets in a lossy overburden and on specific anomalies in a limestone medium are reported.
