Case Study - Cave Detection: The Sting Cave

The data set that started the Electrical Resistivity Imaging Industry

Date:  October 29, 1994

Site:  Sun City construction site, Round Rock, TX, USA

Instrument:  StingR1, 28  Dual-Mode Swift electrodes

Software:  EarthImager2D

Results:  Cave 2(Sting Cave) was detected near a previously known cave, Cave 1. Cave 1 is air filled, but has lower resistivity than the Sting cave due to carbonate columns that electrically connect the floor and ceiling.  The Sting cave is air filled and does not have any columns.  Both caves were drilled with large diameter 24 inch entrance holes for exploration. Depth to the ceiling is 1.8m for cave 1 and 7.3m for Sting Cave.
