  • Editorial

    Waikato Geological Society (Waikato Geological Society, The University of Waikato, 1967)
    The production of yet another new journal requires some explanation although there need be no apology. The Earth Science Journal is intended to answer the need, caused by increasing specialisation by other journals, for a ...
  • The climate of the Waikato Basin

    de Lisle, J.F. (Waikato Geological Society, The University of Waikato, 1967)
    The topography of the Waikato Valley and its position in relation to the large-scale weather system give it warm humid summers, mild winters and a moderate rainfall with a winter maximum. Some typical meteorological ...
  • Volcanic ash beds in the Waikato district

    Pullar, W.A. (Waikato Geological Society, The University of Waikato, 1967)
    This report lies somewhere between the "pathfinder" variety and the completed account for the reason that the results of detailed mapping and identification are still being prepared for publication. For the younger beds ...
  • Note on the occurrence of Taupo pumice in the Hamilton basin

    Tonkin, Philip J. (Waikato Geological Society, The University of Waikato, 1967)
    The presence of a thin layer of pumice lapilli and ash close to the surface of the Rukuhia and Moanatuatua peat bogs was recorded by Grange and Taylor (1939). Since this time a similar band of pumice has been noted in many ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • The surface features and soil pattern of the Hamilton basin

    McCraw, J.D. (Waikato Geological Society, The University of Waikato, 1967)
    The Holocene history of the Hamilton basin and development of the soil pattern are closely related. The basin was partly filled by the large alluvial fan of the Waikato River which partly buried a hilly, ash-covered ...
  • Notes on the hydrology of the Waikato River

    Ridall, G.T. (Waikato Geological Society, The University of Waikato, 1967)
    The catchment area of the Waikato River is 5,500 square miles. If its source is accepted as being the Upper Waikato, then its distance to the sea at Port Waikato including its journey through Lake Taupo is 266 miles. It ...
  • Geology of the Hamilton region

    Schofield, J.C. (Waikato Geological Society, The University of Waikato, 1967)
    This account takes the form of a synopsis which closely follows that prepared for a bulletin entitled "Geology of the Ngaruawahia Subdivision" (Kear and Schofield, in press). Normally such repetition should be avoided but ...
  • Economic geology of the Waikato

    Kear, David (Waikato Geological Society, The University of Waikato, 1967)
    The Waikato contributes between 20 and 25 per cent of New Zealand's mineral production. Aggregate from Mesozoic rocks ranges from good (greywacke) to poor (argillite), with detailed differences being related to the position ...
