In this report, a Frequency Domain Airborne Electromagnetic (AEM) survey in the Powder River Basin was completed as part of a hydrologic study of coal bed natural gas production. The intent of this survey was to evaluate AEM for large-scale mapping of vadose-zone electrical conductivity and water quality variation within shallow aquifers to evaluate the effects of produced water disposal.
