Electrical resistivity surveys of karst features near Fort Stanton, Lincoln County, New Mexico
John McLean and Barbara Luke

Abstract:

Beginning in 2002, earth-resistivity measurements using an in-line dipole-dipole array were used to locate existing passages in Fort Stanton Cave and possibly find undiscovered extensions of known passages. Eight resistivity profiles display the effects of known cave passages, and several anomalies that may represent unknown passages or related fractures and bedding-plane separations.
