Record #207857:

Les sondages sismiques de la commission helvétique des glaciers / A. Renaud, P.L. Mercanton.

Title: Les sondages sismiques de la commission helvétique des glaciers / A. Renaud, P.L. Mercanton.
Translated title: Seismic sounding of glaciers by the Swiss Glacier Commission.
Author(s): Renaud, A.
Mercanton, P. L.
Date: 1948.
Language: French.
Abstract: Reviews development since 1931 of seismic sounding of glaciers by Commission. Compares with direct mechanical techniques, interprets sample seismograph output, and discusses sounding campaigns on Glacier Inferieur de l'Aar (Unteraargletscher), Morteratschgletscher, Glacier de la Plaine Morte, etc. Notes that results reveal glacier bed largely in contact with bedrock, rather than ground moraine everywhere as thought. Presents values obtained for speeds of seismic waves in glacier ice.
