Utsi and K.K.K. Singh, discusses the technical feasibility of designing what became the MineVue project, recently commissioned for the Indian Government. “Radar Suitability in Aeolian Sand Dunes – A Global Review,” co-authored with D. Tatum, summarises work with long-range radar for developing seismic static solutions and building reservoir analogies in sand dunes located in Wales, Libya, Algeria, Namibia, South Africa, Australia and Brazil. “The Role of GPR in Bauxite Resource Evaluations” discusses the application of long-range radar to bauxite exploration, with case studies from Turkey, the USA, Australia, Brazil and elsewhere.
