An electromagnetic frequency sounding experiment with a rigid horizontal transmitter coil carrying a stabilized oscillating current was carried out in South Tunesia.

The field data were interpreted in terms of the mutual impedance ratio in the horizontal coils system. Where the measurements were sufficiently accurate they generally could be interpreted to a high degree of fit. It is concluded that a vehicle‐mounted electromagnetic frequency sounding system is suitable for a fast survey.
