Moss, F.J., 1963. L058 Alice Springs seismic refraction survey, NT, 1962. Record  . Geoscience Australia, Canberra.

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.

Lineage

Seismic refraction traverses were shot in the Farm Area, Alice Springs, NT during the periods 29th August to 1st September and 24th November to 1st December 1961. The object of the survey was to assist in the search for underground water by determining the thickness of the Mesozoic to Recent sediments overlyingbasement of steeply-dipping Palaeozoic and Proterozoic sediments having a roughly easterly strike. North-south traverses were surveyed to obtain the required information on basement depths. The refraction profiling techniques described by Dyson and Wiebenga (1957) were used in this recent work.
