Download Application of seismic-refraction techniques to hydrologic studies

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.

Seven two-dimensional (2-D) seismic refraction lines were used to determine the thickness and geometry of a valley train outwash deposit of the Quaternary Henry Formation near Heyworth in southern McLean County, Illinois.

These refraction data were collected and processed in 2-D, then imported into a Petrel, a three-dimensional (3-D) geological modeling software package. The 3-D geologic model Cited by: 4. Seismic refraction is a standard geophysical exploration technique used to locate seismic velocity boundaries.

Seismic boundaries result from either changes in the physical properties or composition of the material through which the seismic waves propagate. The seismic refraction technique is described in detail by numerous texts. Seismic refraction is a geophysical principle (see refraction) governed by Snell's Law.

Used in the fields of engineering geology, geotechnical engineering and exploration geophysics, seismic refraction traverses (seismic lines) are performed using a seismograph(s) and/or. 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.

Note. Introduction. The seismic refraction method utilizes seismic waves travelling through different parts of the subsurface.

A seismic source is used to generate compressional waves, which is measured by a seismograph and a series of evenly spaced sensors (typically 12, 24, 48 or more geophones). Basic principles of the seismic method In this chapter we introduce the basic notion of seismic waves.

In the earth, seismic waves can propagate as longitudinal (P) or as shear (S) waves. For free space, the one-dimensional wave equation is derived. The wave phenomena occurring at a boundary between two layers are discussed, such as Snell’s.

Continuing in its forty-year history of providing students and professionals with a thorough grounding in the science and technology of groundwater hydrology, this third edition has been completely updated to reflect the tremendous changes in the field.

A true essential reference, this book provides a unified presentation of groundwater hydrology, treating fundamental principles, methods and. This guide provides an overview of the seismic refraction method using compressional (P) waves. It does not address the details of the seismic refraction theory, field procedures, or interpretation of the data.

This guide is limited to the commonly used approach to seismic refraction measurements made on land. The seismic refraction method can be adapted for a number of special uses, on land, within a borehole and on water. However, a discussion of these other adaptations of seismic refraction measurements is not included in this guide.study, a new 3D structural model was proposed for the subsurface of the area.

These studies have investigated the capability of the seismic reflection method for imaging crustal structures within challenging hardrock and complex geological settings and show some its potential, but also its limitations.Seismic Refraction Some uses of seismic refraction Mapping bedrock topography Determining the depth of gravel, sand or clay deposits Delineating perched water tables – A free PowerPoint PPT presentation (displayed as a Flash slide show) on silentsoundsparty.com - id: 3b1cca-MTY0Z.
