Summary & Purpose
The archive consists of seismic data collected during 10+ years. The format is SEGY (see Society of Exploration Geophysicists). Included are refraction, surface wave, and down-hole surveys conducted for a variety of clients. Projects represented include bridge foundation studies, slope stability, and groundwater studies including the determination of viscous damping. Academic papers can be found on Scholar Works under the authorship of Paul Michaels. Projects are stored in ZIP archives. Basic Seismic Utilities software can be used to convert data to other formats or generate base maps in CAD format.
This publication was made possible by funding from the Idaho Transportation Department, the United States Army Corps of Engineers and Idaho Power Company.
