Abstract

This paper describes the strength behaviour of regolith in the catchment of Lake Waikopiro in northern Hawke's Bay, an area that is representative of the erosion-prone hill country on the east coast of New Zealand's North Island. It is proposed that the inherent strength of these soils is insufficient to maintain observed regolith depths and slope angles, and that additional mechanically derived cohesion is required to sustain these regoliths
