PIPELINE ROUTE INVESTIGATIONS USING GEOPHYSICAL TECHNIQUES

The author describes various geophysical techniques which can be used by a pipeline route planner so that the location of boreholes can be more accurately targetted. Details are given of a) electromagnetic conductivity, b) electromagnetic ground probing radar, c) electrical resistivity, d) seismic refraction, e) seismic reflection, f) magnetics and g) gravity. Applications for which they are particularly suited are identified and an indication given of the cost. For the covering abstract see IRRD 877168.
