Paper Abstract

The nonseismic geophysical exploration with its portability and low cost is the focus on geophysical exploration. The ultralong electromagnetic wave remote sensing is the one of the low cost, portable, sensitive and rapid geophysical exploration methods. The detector receiving the natural ultralong electromagnetic wave is composed of three parts: main engine with portable computer, antenna with amplifier and external power. The detector operation is always stable and repeated at the same spot but the different time. The detector with high sensitivity and high signal-to-noise ratio can reveal the geological and lithologic interfaces, strata and related mineral sources. For two-year-experiment and application, the detector resolved, a lot of problems in the geological exploration, which can be applied in finding the paleoweathering crust, mafic lave, hydrocarbon reservoir, water and oil reservoir, and sea ooze. The technology is an economic and rapid method to explorate the area under water, with cover, varied topography, human disruption and lava shields.
