    techniques (e.g., seismic refraction, seismic reflection, ground penetrating radar, electrical resistivity, gravity, magnetics) to solve applied problems in the environmental, resource exploration, geotechnical, and archeology fields. Labs will consist of field experiments/exercises and applied problem sets . The application of seismic refraction method can increase the effectiveness of geotechnical data in term of cost and time since it can determine the subsurface information in two dimensional (2-D) profiles rapidly by employing fewer workers compared to others conventional mapping techniques.

Seismic refraction involves measuring the travel time of the component of seismic energy which travels down to the top of rock (or other distinct density contrast), is refracted along the top of rock, and returns to the surface as a head wave along a wave front similar to the bow wake of a ship (see Seismic Refraction Geometry below).

    Application to Assessment of Rock Quality. Seismic refraction most commonly employed where velocities increase suddenly with depth, e.g. determining depth to bedrock. From the estimated layer velocities estimates of rock strength and excavation difficulty can be made. BASIC THEORETICAL PRINCIPLES OF SEISMIC METHODS I. Huygens Principle: “Every point on the wave front is a source of a new wave that travels out of it in the form of spherical shells.” Seismic rays are used instead of the wave front to describe the wave propagation.

Application of seismic-refraction techniques to hydrologic studies by F. P. Haeni Download PDF EPUB FB2

During the past 30 years, seismic-refraction methods have been used extensively in petroleum, mineral, and engineering investigations, and to some extent for hydrologic applications. Recent advances in equipment, sound sources, and computer interpretation techniques make seismic refraction a highly effective and economical means of obtaining subsurface data in hydrologic studies.

Section D of Book 2 is on surface geophysical methods. The unit of publication, the Chapter, is limited to a narrow field of subject matter. This format permits flexibility in revision and publication as the need arises. "Application of Seismic-Refraction Techniques to Hydrologic Studies" is Chapter D2 of Book 2.
