Abstract

The technique makes use of a microseismic timer to determine the compressional wave velocity (clast-sound velocity) in each clast of a group chosen from a single deposit. From these data a groupe mean velocity is determined that is proportional to the age of the deposit : the youngest deposits having the highest velocities. The clast-sound velocity method can be applied to many unconsolidated bouldery deposits up to approximately one million years old
