Download Full Text (3.2 MB)
A set of brief Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) surveys was made inside Big Manhole Cave (BMC) and over the entrance room on March 24-28, 2009 to determine the distinguishing features of a GPR image of a cave and to help determine whether passages might exist close to existing passages. This report summarizes the results. The chronological sequence of GPR measurements was 1) Floor of the entrance room (3/25/09), 2) Northeast dig branch at the bottom of the dig (from survey point W17 to W19) (3/26/09), 3) Southeast dig branch at the bottom of the dig (near survey point W23) (3/27/09) 4) Surface survey over the cave just south of the gate However, the results will be presented starting with the surface survey and working downward since it makes interpretation of the data easier.
