An electromagnetic depth sounding experiment with a horizontal loop carrying an oscillating current was carried out in Santa Clara Valley, California. The field data are interpreted in terms of the polarization parameters of the magnetic polarization ellipse. The chosen parameters are tilt-angle, ellipticity and the modulus of wave-tilt. The electrical discontinuities deduced are in general agreement with well data and with a geologic section based on resistivity soundings. The results clearly reveal an intermediate, highly resistive layer, which is a permeable stratum for groundwater recharge. It is concluded that a portable electromagnetic sounding system, measuring only tilt-angle and ellipticity, should easily locate highly resistive gravel deposits bounded by conductive clay beds.
