A suddenly applied electric current is passed through the earth by means of spaced electrodes. The form of the potential transient as it appears outside the current electrodes is studied. The potential transient is extremely rapid and refined methods of recording are necessary. Means for measuring the relative times of the transient potentials received from different points are discussed. A survey taken over a known deep salt dome is shown; anomalous times of the transients are found to exist over the dome. No correlation is seen between the times of the transients and the resistivity as found by ordinary electrical methods.
