Seismic Reflection

Seismic Reflection Delineated Faults Within A Former Rocket Propulsion Test Area

Five reflection profiles ranging between 1110 and 2900 feet long were recorded across the valley center using 10 feet geophone spacing and a 1000 pound weight drop to generate the seismic waves.  Penetration was about 330 feet deep.  Five separate fault/fold structures that may affect ground water flow were interpreted and later verified by drilling.
