Melhuish, A.; Bannister, S.C. 1995 Shallow P-wave and S-wave reflection and refraction data from Bluff Hill and surrounding flats, Napier . Lower Hutt: Institute of Geological & Nuclear Sciences Institute of Geological & Nuclear Sciences science report 95/19 7 p.
Abstract: Measurements of the seismic velocity of shear (S) waves and compressional (P) waves in the near-surface layer on Bluff Hill and the surrounding flats have revealed the shallow velocity structure of the area. Direct and refracted P- and S-wave arrivals were recorded along multichannel seismic profiles at nine sites, and broad differences between the shallow velocity structure on Bluff Hill and that on the surrounding flats were apparent. On Bluff Hill, the S-wave near-surface layer is thin (
