Abstract : INITIAL TESTS WITH A GROUND WATER DETECTION UNIT INDICATED THAT CHANGES IN GROUND MOISTURE CONTENT AND WATER TABLE PRODUCED LARGE VARIATIONS IN THE SHAPE OF A ONE MICROSECOND PULSE. This equipment was reconstructed and mounted on vehicles for a further test series under non-arid conditions. Field trials were carried out in the Toronto, Parry Sound and Collingwood areas ofetection, Radio waves, Very high frequency, Pulse transmitters, Oscillo scopes, Soils, Earth. Initial tests with a ground water detection unit indicated that changes in ground moisture content and water table produced large variations in the shape of a one microsecond pulse. This equipment was reconstructed and mounted on vehicles for a further test series under non-arid conditions. Field trials were carried out in the Toronto, Parry Sound and Collingwood areas of Ontario. These areas were selected since they represented cases of very pure surface water, clay soil and hard water, and limestone bedrock with subsequent hard water. The purpose of the test series was to correlate the results with the physical properties of the ground. (Author)
