Class Information
Number: 367/86
Name: Communications, electrical: acoustic wave systems and devices > Borehole testing
Description: Subject matter wherein information or intelligence pertaining to the walls of a passageway through the earth is obtained from a device which travels through the passageway and emits acoustic waves into the medium contained within the passageway (e.g., air, water) which are reflected from the walls back to the device and detected.
