Title

Use of ground penetrating radar (GPR), reflection seismic and electrical resistivity geophysical methods in detecting geological anomalies for the purposes of safety and exploration at underground and surface mines

Abstract

"Ground penetrating radar (GPR) is a non-destructive electromagnetic geophysical tool that can be used to map continuous spans of the subsurface...This dissertation demonstrates that the GPR can be used as a mapping tool for evaluation of strata at limestone and dolomite mines, and the knowledge obtained by this tool could improve safety of mines and people who work there...Along with the evaluation of the GPR technique for mapping the rock strata, this project examines effectiveness of resistivity and reflection seismic techniques for detection of abandoned mine workings, buried objects, depth to bedrock, etc."--Abstract, leaf iii.
