An investigation of the properties of electrical conductors by the method of electromagnetic prospecting Paterson, Norman Reed


This thesis describes work carried out in an attempt to relate the physical properties, in particular, the restivity of certain electrical conductors to the secondary field generated by them in the presence of an alternating primary electromagnetic field. It also discusses, the feasability of determining these properties by the normal methods of electromagnetic prospecting, and relating them to the mineralogical properties of geological conductors.
