Technical paper: Recent developments in geophysical techniques for the rapid location of near-surface anomalous ground conditions

By Peter McDowell, University of Portsmouth

This paper was first published in the April 1981 issue of GE


Two, recently developed, geophysical techniques for the rapid location of near surface anomalous ground conditions are outlined. These are the inductive measurement of ground conductivity and fluxgate gradiometry. The applications and limitations of these techniques are illustrated by case histories of actual site investigations.
