A Transect of 200 Shallow Shear-Velocity Profiles across the Los Angeles Basin
This study assesses a 60 km north-northeast–south-southwest transect along the San Gabriel River for shallow shear velocities, in San Gabriel Valley and the Los Angeles Basin of southern California. We assessed a total of ...
A Shallow Shear-Wave Velocity Transect across the Reno, Nevada, Area Basin
In October and November 2001, we performed an urban shear-wave velocity transect across 16 km of the Reno, Nevada, area basin. Using the refraction microtremor method of Louie (2001) we determined shear-wave velocity versus ...
The northern Walker Lane refraction experiment: Pn arrivals and the northern Sierra Nevada root
In May 2002, we collected a new crustal refraction profile from Battle Mountain, Nevada across western Nevada, the Reno area, Lake Tahoe, and the northern Sierra Nevada Mountains to Auburn, CA. Mine blasts and earthquakes ...
