  • A systems approach to the description and interpretation of the landsurface of the northern half of the North Island, New Zealand

    Conacher, A.J. (Waikato Geological Society, The University of Waikato, 1967)
    The paper examines a framework of approach within which landsurface analysis may be undertaken in the humid-temperate northern half of the North Island, New Zealand; an area exhibiting a wide range of lithologies and surface ...
  • Recent aggradation within the Waikato River

    Schofield, J.C. (Waikato Geological Society, The University of Waikato, 1967)
    Since approximately 130 A.D. the bed of the Waikato River, in its lower reaches, has been raised 20 to 30ft - most likely by an amount closer to the latter figure. This represents an average of about 1ft every 60 years. ...
  • Fifteenth century earth science

    Stokes, Evelyn (Waikato Geological Society, The University of Waikato, 1967)
    The earth science content of two late medieval encyclopedias, the Mirrour of the World and Higden's Polychronicon, both printed by William Caxton in the 1480's, is examined in relation to fifteenth century ideas about the ...
  • Tidal hydrology in Pegasus Bay

    Blake, G.J. (Waikato Geological Society, The University of Waikato, 1967)
    Changes in the geomorphology of the coastal plain river mouths of Pegasus Bay over the last 100 years are considered. Comment is also made on estuarine sediment and flow, the difficulty of measuring these two quantities ...
  • Erosion by high intensity rainfalls in the lower Waikato

    Selby, Michael J. (Waikato Geological Society, The University of Waikato, 1967)
    A high intensity rainstorm with rainfalls exceeding 10 inches in 24 hours on the Hunua Range is described, and some of its geomorphological and economic consequences discussed.
  • 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 ...
  • Uses of volcanic ash beds in geomorphology

    Pullar, W.A. (Waikato Geological Society, The University of Waikato, 1967)
    In geomorphology air-fall volcanic ashes possess high value as marker beds. These have proved particularly useful in studies associated with infilling of flood plains, fan building, terrace correlation and chronology, ...
