Title: Results of Elastic-Wave Surveys in California and Elsewhere

Author(s): Frank Rieber (2)


Geophysical exploration in loosely consolidated materials presents a problem different from similar surveys in areas where there is a marked differentiation between beds. However, even in these loosely consolidated materials, velocity of wave transmission varies in general with depth of original overburden, and correlations based on this fact have been found reliable. Apparatus has been specially developed to meet the requirements of operation in such materials.
