Title: Seismic Refraction Study of Buried Valley Near Peninsula, Ohio: ABSTRACT

Author(s): Mark B. Mangun

Article Type: Meeting abstract


A seismic refraction study of the ancestral Cuyahoga River Valley in Boston and Northampton townships provided data for a structural contour map of the bedrock surface. The results generally agree with previous work, but a narrower valley floor is indicated. Inferences from the seismic velocities were made as to the bedrock type and to the nature of the glacial fill. The data are generally statistically significant for the area except in several locations where problems were encountered in interpreting the proper waveforms in the field.
