Abstract The methods of seismic refraction surveying may be adapted to the accurate determination of depth and undulation of a rock surface where the depth to rock is less than 50 feet. Four seismic field methods and a laboratory method were used to determine shear wave propagation velocities and shear moduli for two sites. The four seismic methods are standard seismic refraction survey, downhole shooting refraction survey, transient Rayleigh wave survey, and crosshole shooting survey. A torsional resonant column apparatus was used for the laboratory tests. (Author Modified Abstract)
