Experiment-8: SASW Array (2012 Re-Test)
Experiment Type: Field
Description: This experiment involved testing of the saturated peat within the berm to perform SASW. Instead of using the Atom Ant shaker, ground excitation consisted of people jumping up and down on the ground, as well as heavy objects being dropped on the ground. The main purpose of this experiment was to see how much of a difference there was between the dessicated upper layer of peat from the previous year's test and the saturated upper layer from this year's test.
