AbstractAs part of a hydrogeophyscial study of the Vars-Winchester esker three seismic profiles have been acquired using a novel in-house two component (horizontal and vertical) Microvibe seismic source with a 48-channel, three component landstreamer. This new hardware has allowed for the acquisition and processing of very high-resolution 2-D images of the esker for groundwater exploration. Following the acquisition of the profiles, four boreholes have been drilled to bedrock. The lithologies of the esker system such as marine mud (silt and clay), sand, gravel, and diamicton, are well characterised by the seismic facies and shearwave velocities.
