sounder

sounder (radio) An instrument which emits a continuous series of short pulses of electromagnetic energy towards a planetary or satellite surface. The return signal provides a map of the subsurface electrical conductivity, which can be used to infer subsurface structure, as well as information on topography. This technique was used on the Apollo 17 lunar mission to study subsurface structure.
