Abstract:

A full scale version of an electromagnetic pulse sounding probe is described with attendent experimental data. Propagation and scattering measurements in limestone and dolomite media are presented. The scattering measurements are for targets consisting of faults, joints and lithologic contrasts in a dolomite limestone and dolomite media are given and realistic pulse propagation calculations using these data are shown. Probe calibration procedures are described and illustrated.
