Abstract: The US Army Water Detection Response Team is a rapid response team designed to offer assistance to the military in securing water supplies in support of military operations. Currently, the team is staffed by volunteer civilians. However, plans are to transition field operations functions of the team to active or reserve military units. The Geophysics Element of the team develops and maintains capability to apply surface geophysical methods for location well drilling sites in the areas of interesL The Geophysics Element will only be deployed if existing data are insufficient to support assistance requests. Currently, the Geophysics Element is equipped to conduct and interpret seismic refraction, electrical resistivity, and very low frequency electromagnetic surveys for water well siting. The Water Detection Response Team has assisted requesting major commands in Southwest Asia, Northeast Africa, Central America, and Korea. The Geophysics Element has been deployed to participate in several major military exercises. Case histories of the Geophysics Element involvement in these exercises are presented tn this report.
