Abstract:

The Waterways Experiment Station WES is currently involved in investigating several sites at the Edgewood Mea EA of Aberdeen Proving Ground APG, Maryland. These investigations consist of placing monitoring wells and periodically collecting samples for laboratory analysis. Additionally, several of the sites are to be investigated geophysically to determine if any anomalous areas exist. One of the sites, Cluster 3, a suspected landfill area is the focus of this report. Geophysical surveys were conducted to help delineate any anomalies indicative of buried waste, waste containers, boundaries of burial trenches, and the depth to water table. The geophysical methods utilized at the site were electromagnetic induction EM, magnetics, and seismic refraction. MM
