Abstract

In the present study, the novel geophysical imaging method of muography is introduced for the studies of rocks around scientific boreholes drilled into continental crust (or oceanic crust thrust over continental crust). In this application, the method can be used for detecting density variations in rocks intersected by the borehole. The present study also explains what are the lowest density variations observable by muography, what are the principles governing the volume the density data is extracted from, and what are the likely practical limits for borehole muography.
