The symposium was an attempt to define the scope of problems and review the state-of-the-art in geophysical cavity detection methods. The keynote address, case history presentations by Corps of Engineers personnel and others, were intended to define the scope of the problem faced by these involved in site selection and evaluation and investigation of the foundations of existing structures in areas where subsurface cavities may be a problem. Other presentations were intended to give an overview of cavity detection methods and their applicability. Technical presentations on specific detection methods were intended to give an introduction to a variety of geophysical methods applicable to the cavity detection problem and provide a review of the state-of-the-art, Part II consists of a press release on the symposium, Part III contains the detailed symposium abstracts, and Part IV presents a summary and recommendations. The agenda, bibliography, and a list of attendees are presented in the appendices.
