(i) To develop a streamlined field procedure focussing on (a) Fhysical set-up (transducer placement, conduit requirements, equipment layout etc. ) (b) 'I'ransducer movement during logging (c) Data retention system (including file r.aming) . (ii) To test field performance and functionality of the system as assEnnbled. were (a) l,ccuracy The main aspects critically examined (b) Durability (including battery performance) (c) Reliability (dl Effects of set-up configuration. 3.3.2 Description Field testing included tests on the (i) pumped Bore (ii) Remote site / observation Bore (iii) pumped bore discharge (iv) Barometric pressure pumped bore testing was conducted at a number of localities. These included bores RN 26893 (2 1/2 mile Depot, Darwin) and RN 20544 (McMillans Rd., Darwin). Observation bore and long term testing was conducted at bores RN 8992 (Hiddle point), and RN 22172 (Hc~1inns borefield, Darwin) respectively. During the period of this testing I equipment currently
