Image: image of layered diagram that superimposes a 200 MHz unmigrated radargram on resistivity, with traces missing at an obstruction

Integrated geophysical study of jointed tuff. Layered diagram superimposes a 200 MHz unmigrated radargram on resistivity, with traces missing at an obstruction. Migrated 200 MHz radargram shows deepest reflection lies at ~8 m. Polygonal cooling joints mapped at the surface are indicated as the interface between A and B.
