Abstract : The goals of this thesis are (1) to design and test a two-axis surface wave source and two-axis surface wave receiver and (2) to investigate the use of surface waves to detect buried objects in water saturated sand. Results of measurements confirm the ability to generate particle motions in water saturated sand consistent with surface wave excitation. However, limitations in the size of the test tank prohibit a thorough investigation of the ability of the source and receiver to selectively excite and detect surface waves
