Conference paper


For the determination of velocity-depth-relations döwn to approximately 50 m results of seismic reflection measurements are presented. The recordings were carried out by self-constructed computer-controlled equipment. The influence of the uppermost part (cm) of the weathered material on the seismograms for the horizontal profiles is discussed in one case. In the field records longitudinal wave reflection arrivals can only be correctly correlated with each other after digital data processing. Addi tional vertical seismic sections from borehole measurements would be necessary.
