Title WRRCTR No.10 Feasibility of Radio Sounding to the Groundwater Table in Hawaii
Creator Jiracek, George R
Subject Groundwater -- Hawaii -- Hawaii Island. Radar in hydrology.
Description The reported high values of resistivity in the near surface zones in semi-arid regions on the island of Hawaii motivated research into the feasibility of using radio waves to sound the depth to the ground water table. Field tests using a 35 MHz ranging system (built in England for ice depth sounding) were made in areas of differing geology and climate, but in no instance was an echo identified as having originated from the water table. Measurements made of transmissions from within an...
