  • Aeolian activity in a Urewera catchment

    Cochrane, G. Ross (Waikato Geological Society, The University of Waikato, 1967)
    Analyses of sedimentary deposits on the Otapora flat and adjacent flood plain areas of Whakatane River demonstrate that aeolian activity is important even in a humid (BB'r) forested Catchment. The importance of relief and ...
  • The age of quaternary surfaces at Waihi Beach

    Selby, Michael J.; Pullar, W.A.; McCraw, J.D. (Waikato Geological Society, The University of Waikato, 1971)
    The Waihi Beach surfaces were originally mapped and correlated with European surfaces of similar altitude by Kear and Waterhouse (1961). Exposures along the edges of the surfaces indicate that they are covered with volcanic ...
  • Aggregation characteristics and maturity of Peak District soils

    Bryan, Rorke B. (Waikato Geological Society, The University of Waikato, 1969)
    Soil aggregation and aggregate stability are fundamental factors in determination of soil erodibility. The aggregation characteristics of soils in a region of high erosion potential are measured, and controlling factors ...
  • An analysis of the effect of topography on rainfall in the Taieri catchment area, Otago

    Hutchinson, Peter (Waikato Geological Society, The University of Waikato, 1968)
    In an area of 2500 square miles, consisting of the Taieri Catchment basin and adjoining areas, there are only 37 rain gauges for which there are records for more than four years. Since the topography is varied, it is ...
  • Annotated bibliography of central North Island volcanic ash stratigraphy

    Tonkin, Philip J.; Pullar, W.A. (Waikato Geological Society, The University of Waikato, 1967)
    Prior to 1929 many observations had been published giving brief accounts of the volcanic ash deposits in various parts of the North Island but no detailed investigations were undertaken. With the incidence of Bush Sickness ...
  • An appraisal of nutrient supplies available for tree growth in a pumice soil

    Knight, P.J.; Will, G.M. (Waikato Geological Society, The University of Waikato, 1970)
    Chemical analyses have confirmed and explained the results of an earlier pot trial in which the availability of major nutrients in six pumice ash layers of Kaingaroa silty sand was assessed by the growth of radiata pine ...
  • Artificial earth sculpture

    Blair, W.N. (Waikato Geological Society, The University of Waikato, 1968)
    William Newsham Blair (1841-91) was born in Scotland, and trained there as an engineer and surveyor. He emigrated to Dunedin at the end of 1863 and took employment with the Otago Provincial Survey Department at the beginning ...
  • Aspects of the geomorphology of the Greywacke Ranges bordering the Lower and Middle Waikato Basins

    Selby, Michael J. (Waikato Geological Society, The University of Waikato, 1967)
    The fault-bounded blocks which make up the Greywacke Ranges bordering the Lower and Middle Waikato Basins have a deep red-weathered regolith and are covered by mantles of volcanic ash which can be used for dating ground ...
  • Bioerosion on shore platforms developed in the Waitemata Formation, Auckland

    Healy, T.R. (Waikato Geological Society, The University of Waikato, 1968)
    Bioerosion - the removal of lithic substrate by the erosive activities of living organisms- has not previously been discussed for New Zealand shore platforms. This paper aims at drawing attention to bioerosion as a process ...

  • Chronology of fans and terraces in the Galatea Basin

    Pain, C.F.; Pullar, W.A. (Waikato Geological Society, The University of Waikato, 1968)
    Air-borne volcanic ash beds are used to date fans and terraces in the Galatea Basin and to outline the depositional history of this part of the Rangitaiki Valley. The basin is interpreted as a fault-angle depression formed ...
  • The climate of the Waikato Basin

    de Lisle, J.F. (Waikato Geological Society, The University of Waikato, 1967)
