A Technique For Making Torsion Balance Surveys Of Inundated Areas, Karl Frederick Hasselmann Jan 1945

A Technique For Making Torsion Balance Surveys Of Inundated Areas, Karl Frederick Hasselmann

Professional Degree Theses

"The need for a technique for making torsion balance surveys of inundated areas was brought to the writer's attention during the years of 1927 to 1933, while employed by The Sinclair Exploration Company to prospect for oil in Austria, Hungary and North and Northwest Germany. At that time, the company was using ten torsion balances, supplementing the work with magnetometer surveys and refraction seismograph detail. During part of this period an elementary and relatively insensitive gravimeter was used. Some reflection seismograph work was also done during the last year of operations. During the course of surveying in North and ...


A Comparative Analysis Of Some Recent Mining Practices In The Tri- State Mining District, James Francis Alexander Taylor Jan 1945

A Comparative Analysis Of Some Recent Mining Practices In The Tri- State Mining District, James Francis Alexander Taylor

Masters Theses

"The Tri-State District, encompassing contiguous corner portions of Southwest Missouri, Southeast Kansas, and Northeast Oklahoma, has been, for many years, the leading zinc producer of the United States. However, rising labor costs and decreasing grade of ore reserves have meant that many of the mines gradually have become marginal in the economic character of their operations. In an attempt to counteract these adverse effects, steps were taken to attain lower cost mining methods, and mechanization has been introduced over a period of years. Further, the research program of the Eagle-Picher Company, the leading producer of the district, has been accelerated ...
