  • Volcanic studies by members of the Royal Society of London 1665 - 1780

    Stokes, Evelyn (Waikato Geological Society, The University of Waikato, 1971)
    Late seventeenth century ideas about volcanic activity were largely derived from classical sources. The Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society of London provided a vehicle for publication of information about ...
  • Hydrological factors influencing sediment concentration fluctuations in small drainage basins

    Imeson, A.C. (Waikato Geological Society, The University of Waikato, 1971)
    Although sediment concentrations measured in two contrasting streams in East Yorkshire fluctuate in response to similar hydrological factors, the effectiveness of these factors reflects the environmental characteristics ...
  • Mass movement in Tangoio conservation reserve northern Hawkes Bay

    Eyles, R.J. (Waikato Geological Society, The University of Waikato, 1971)
    In a random sample of 52 valley-side profiles at Tangoio, mass movements are shown to occur preferentially on profiles with a northerly aspect, which are long, or steeply sloping. Detailed measurements of 27 debris slide ...
  • The significance of vegetation, fire and man in the stabilisation of sand dunes near the Warburton Ranges, Central Australia

    Conacher, A.J. (Waikato Geological Society, The University of Waikato, 1971)
    The vegetation cover of sand dunes and sandplain country in a part of Central Australia is aperiodically destroyed by fire, caused by lightning and Aboriginal activities. Subsequent mobilisation, transportation and ...
  • The origin of beach sediments on the North Queensland coast

    Bird, E.C.F. (Waikato Geological Society, The University of Waikato, 1971)
    Petrographic and granulometric analyses of North Queensland beach sediments indicate their affinity with sediments delivered to the coast by rivers, and it is shown that the beaches are largely derived from fluvial sediment ...
  • 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 ...
  • Further comments-Waihi Terrace and Hamilton Ash Ages

    Kear, David; Waterhouse, B.C. (Waikato Geological Society, The University of Waikato, 1971)
    The authors of the previous paper (Selby et al. 1971) kindly allowed us to see their manuscript, prior to publication. They have made a significant contribution to Bay of Plenty late Quaternary stratigraphy in recognising ...
