Abstract : Results of a crosshole seismic velocity survey at the Miser's Bluff Test Site, Arizona for the U.S. Air Force shows the bedrock material to be hard, dense, and have a high compressional wave velocity. A relatively low shear wave velocity may indicate weak cementation. Based on crosshole data the water table appears to be between 35 and 40 feet in depth. (Author)
