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 ...
