  • Discovery of halloysite books in altered silicic Quaternary tephras, northern New Zealand

    Cunningham, Michael J.; Lowe, David J.; Wyatt, Justin Burns; Moon, Vicki G.; Churchman, G. Jock (Mineralogical Society of Great Britain and Ireland, 2016-10-11)
    Hydrated halloysite was discovered in books, a morphology previously associated exclusively with kaolinite. From ~1.5 μm to ~1500 μm in length, the books showed significantly greater mean Fe contents (Fe2O3 = 5.2 wt%) than ...
  • Landslides in sensitive soils, Tauranga, New Zealand.

    Moon, Vicki G.; Cunningham, Michael J.; Wyatt, Justin Burns; Lowe, David J.; Morz, T.; Jorat, M.E. (CRC Press, 2013)
    In the Tauranga region sensitive soil failures commonly occur after heavy rainfall events, causing considerable infrastructure damage. Several notable landslides include a large failure at Bramley Drive, Omokoroa in 1979, ...
  • Sensitivity and clay mineralogy of weathered tephra-derived soil materials in the Tauranga region

    Wyatt, Justin Burns (The University of Waikato, 2009)
    Soil sensitivity is defined as the ratio of peak to remoulded shear strength. Problem soil materials are those that show large strength losses on disruption, resulting in catastrophic failure, liquefaction and long run-out ...
