Title

Radar imagery and bore hole data - a partnership for identifying a rock instability problem

Abstract

Radar Imagery in conjuction with bore hole data successfully mapped the geometry and extent of a clay seam behind an underground rock wall of questionable stability. This resulted in the modification of the excavation and rock bolting plan in order to increase the stability of the associated rock masses. Uniqueness of the project includes a) the utilization of the excavation and rock bolting geometry to both verify the interpreted clay images and to provide time to depth calibration data and b) the value of deconvolution and the use of color as an aid to data interpretation and presentation. -Authors
