Processing and interpretation of 2d land seismic reflection survey over bishop wood Yorkshire, England

  A seismic reflection survey was carried out in Bishop Wood, Yorkshire to determine the subsurface structure and the depth to the prospective gypsum and coal measures. Four 24-channel Geodes were used with a PEG40 accelerated weight drop and 10 Hz geophones at 3 m intervals to shot a 1099 m spread.  The final depth processed section shows some reflectors which are clearly visible and is geologically...

Hydrogeophysical investigation in selected parts of Irepodun/Ifelodun local government area of Ekiti State, Southwestern Nigeria

  Hydrogeophysical studies have been undertaken at Irepodun/Ifelodun local government area of Ekiti State, Nigeria. The area is underlain by the Basement Complex rocks. The study involved very low frequency electromagnetic (VLF-EM) and electrical resistivity methods. The results are presented as profiles, sections, curves, charts and maps. VLF-EM anomalies were evaluated using geoelectric soundings. Geoelectric...
