Abstract
THIS RESEARCH WILL EXPLORE THE POSSIBILITIES AND RESULT IN THE DESIGN OF AN ACOUSTIC ENERGY GENERATOR FOR GEOPHYSICAL EXPLORATION IN INACCESSIBLE MOUNTAINOUS TERRAIN. THIS EFFORT WILL DETERMINE THE MAGNITUDE OF ACOUSTIC SIGNAL REQUIRED AND WILL DEVELOP A TECHNIQUE FOR COUPLING THE SIGNAL GENERATOR TO THE EARTH. THE COUPLING TECHNIQUE WILL EXAMINE FORCES OTHER THAN GRAVITY TO ENSURE THAT THE SIGNAL GENERATING DEVICE IS LIGHT WEIGHT ENOUGH TO BE AIR TRANSPORTABLE.
