The Geotechnical Offshore Seabed Tool (GOST) was used in three field campaigns in on-and offshore areas in Tauranga, Bay of Plenty, New Zealand. Offshore measurements were performed along the main shipping channel in the Tauranga Harbor and onshore measurements were conducted at the locations of two landslides at Pyes Pa and Omokoroa. From each of these sites a sample static CPTu profile is described and reviewed. Additionally, a vibratory CPTu from the Pyes Pa landslide is presented. The CPTu results were used for subsurface sediments investigations at the tested locations.
