GPR surveys and sediment sampling for OSL dating to determine the formation of fossil marine deltas in the vicinity of Wales and Commonwealth streams, New Harbour
Entry ID: K015_2004_2005_NZ_1

Abstract: The subsurface sedimentary structures that make up New Harbour deltas were investigated using GPR to develop a model for the formation of the fossil marine deltas that are well preserved along the New Harbour coastline wherever large melt streams with a substantial sediment load occur. GPR surveys were conducted on the deltas in the vicinity of Wales and Commonwealth streams, New Harbour, and on ... View entire text
