Surface (Scholte) waves acquired during underwater seismic surveys with hydrophone arrays are analyzed using the multi-channel analysis of surface waves (MASW) method to construct shear-wave velocity (Vs) profiles for the upper 40-m of water-bottom sediments in the Fraser River delta area, near Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. Shear wave profiles are(More)
Shear wave seismic reflection was used to delineate cyclic deposits of massive ice and glacial till in the upper 30 m at a site near Tuktoyaktuk, Northwest Territories, Canada. Shear wave reflections with dominant frequencies in excess of 350 Hz were recorded with a steel shaft and 1 kg hammer source and single 50 Hz horizontal geophones with 30 cm spikes.(More)
It is feasible to use high resolution seismic reflection techniques to image interfaces within the gas hydrate interval at this site on the northeastern edge of the Mackenzie Delta, NW Territories, Canada. Reflections were recorded with a high frequency vibrator to depths in excess of 1000 m. Resolution potential is well within the minimum for delineating(More)
