Abstract : The primary objectives of this study were to (1) determine the utility of radar in the compilation of geological reconnaissance maps, (2) define and analyze radar-linears (joint systems and faults) and infer the nature of the tectonic forces responsible for certain types of local structures, (3) examine the effect of radar look-direction (direction orthogonal to ground track of the aircraft) and determine if there is a factor of directional dependency with radar systems, and (4) evaluate the potential of radar as a single geological reconnaissance tool in the tropical environment and what application these imaging systems may possess for future geological reconnaissance surveys in similar geographic areas.
