Title: Study of Surface Wave Methods for Deep Shear Wave Velocity Profiling Applied to the Deep Sediments of the Mississippi Embayment (NEES-2006-0164)
Year Of Curation: 2011
Description: Surface wave velocity measurements were performed using the low-frequency vibrator operated by the Network for Earthquake Engineering Simulation (NEES) at the University of Texas at Austin. The field measurements were performed in May, 2006 at five sites located in Tennessee and Arkansas and at six additional sites located in Missouri, Arkansas, and Tennessee in May, 2007. Surface wave measurement techniques that were performed include: SASW, multi-channel f-k with active source, ambient noise multi-channel f-k with circular array and Refraction Microtremor (ReMi). Shear wave velocity profiles were developed to depths of over 200 m.
