In Europe, especially in Germany, the application of geophysical methods to waste site explorat ion becomes inereasingly important since their contribution 1.0 the pollution risk estimation has been recognized. Applied geophysics can offer many techniques for the non-invasive mapping of waste sites and should be considered as a main source of information about interesting borehole locations. Between 1960 and 1989 an automobile company used a sand pit located in Mellendorf near Hannover for the disposal of magnesium dross and other industrial waste. After its recultivation, the waste site was covered by a layer containing soil, sand with gravel and clay. Fig.1 shows a geological stratification beneath the survey area derived from boreholes on the waste site (Renno and Christofzik, 1987).
