Abstract

This report concerns the use of a borehole seismic technique to determine whether there are changes in physical properties associated with the faulting of clay, and to provide data on the fault geometry in between boreholes. Surveys have been undertaken at both the reconnaissance borehole array and the experimental test site. The technique has been critically reviewed and shown to be suitable for imaging both the structure of the faulted sequence and variations of physical properties associated with fault induced alteration within one lithology.
