This thesis is a study of the feasibility of classifying submerged mines by means of a nuclear magnetic resonance device which observes the gradients in the perturbed magnetic field of the earth in the vicinity of the mine. The author 's work on this project was accomplished at Varian Associates Instrument-Research Laboratory in Palo Alto, California, during the period January to March, 1968, while a student in the Engineering Electronics curriculum at the U.S. Naval Postgraduate Sohool, Monterey, California. The idea for this means of classifying mines originated with Dr. Martin E. Packard of Varian Associates. The author wishes to express his appreciation to Dr. Packard, and Messrs. Dolan Mansir and John Drake of Varian Associates, and to Professor Carl E. Menneken of the U.S. Naval Postgraduate School for their help, suggestions and encouragement.
