Abstract

This Record describes a seismic refraction survey made during 1961 in the Farm Area, Alice Springs, NT. Good refraction breaks were obtained only along the east-west Traverse K; the refraction breaks along the north-south traverses were very poor. Velocities indicated in the overburden are interpreted in terms of particular geological formations within the Mesozoic and Recent sediments. Results along additional east-west traverses would be needed before a similar interpretation could be applied to the bedrock velocities.
