Abstract: Archaeological investigation is useful to understand the buried satellite tomb in Xixia mausoleum site. But the traditional archaeological investigation method would damage the site. In order to protect the sites,nondestructive geophysical methods are studied. Three kinds of geophysical methods are applied,including magnetic,electromagnetic method( GEM-2),ground penetrating radar( GPR). Firstly,each method is studied,and then the final detection result is obtained through comprehensive analysis. Plane distribution information of the underground medium is obtained quickly by magnetic and electromagnetic method,but the information at depth is limited. The problem could be solved by ground penetrating radar which could not only provide the plane information,but also depth information. The finial geophysical detection result shows that there is an underground tomb buried in the measurement area. The tomb is made up of different parts,such as tomb mound,burial chamber and pyramid-shaped mound. The study result proves that it’s a good idea to investigate the Xixia mausoleum site by geophysical methods.
