The report discusses the development of a seismic method of remote probing of underground strata defect exploration using channel wave seismology. Chapters are presented on theory, equipment, field trials, results and data processing methods. Chapter 1 evaluates the requirement for an in-seam seismic method rather than other remote probing methods. Chapter 2 discusses channel wave properties and development of data processing methods. Specialised equipment is described in chapter 3 covering dynatel and sercel seismic recording systems. In chapter 4 the channel wave phenomenon of dispersion is explained. Chapters 5 and 6 are concerned with imaging methods for cases of single and multiple shots. Field trials carried out are reported in chapter 7 where results show that remote probing using channel wave seismology is a viable technique for probing strata in advance of excavation. (TRRL)
