Abstract
RESEARCH IS PROPOSED TO DEVELOP ITERATIVE RECONSTRUCTION ALGORITHMS AND COMPUTER PROGRAMS TO PERMIT RAPID, HIGH-RESOLUTION (LESS THAN ONE METER) WAVE-DIFFUSION GEOTOMOGRAPHY RECONSTRUCTIONS OF ROCK MASS FRACTURE SYSTEMS AND HYDROLOGIC PROPERTIES. RESEARCH WILL ALSO INVESTIGATE THE MATHEMATICS OF WAVE-DIFFUSION RECONSTRUCTIONS IN THE FREQUENCY DOMAIN. THE ACCURACY AND RESOLUTION OF ALL ALGORITHMS WILL BE EVALUATED USING COMPUTER-GENERATED DATA FROM KNOWN ANOMALIES. THE CARDINAL FOCUS OF THIS RESEARCH PROPOSAL IS TO FIND AN ECONOMICAL AND HIGH-RESOLUTION METHOD TO REMOTELY DEFINE SUBSURFACE ROCK MASS CHARACTERISTICS FOR DEEP CONSTRUCTION AND GROUND WATER MANAGEMENT.
