A test program demonstrated the applicability and advantages in the use of geophysical seismic methods in procurement of geological data important in defining ground-water flow paths. Characteristics of the post-basalt sediments were readily determinable and significant units were traceable. Features below the topmost basalt flow were not identifiable or traceable with techniques tested. It was concluded that refraction seismic methods (using surface shooting with fertilizer-grade ammonium nitrate), rotary drilling, and inhole logging of wells for geologic control present a fast, definitive, and economical combination of shallow exploration techniques./Author/
