Evaluation of crosswell seismic tomography and reverse VSP at the Savannah River Site, South Carolina

Summary

The objective of this project is to conduct crosswell tomography experiments and three-component seismic measurements at the SRS to select the appropriate technology/ methodology to image geological and geotechnical features beneath SRS facilities in support of engineering studies. The principal application of the seismic measurements is to investigate the propagation characteristics of seismic waves in a target zone formed by carbonate bodies, clay beds and loosely consolidated sands at the SRS.
