  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • Regression trend lines of ridges and swales on the emergent beach at Gisborne, New Zealand

    Pullar, W.A.; Warren, W.G. (Waikato Geological Society, The University of Waikato, 1968)
    The emergent sand-beach system at Gisborne consists of six recognisable groups of ridges and swales. It is about three miles wide and four miles long and rises gradually from 15ft above sea level at the coast to 40ft inland. ...
  • 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, ...
