This project will build on ongoing work that has has coarsely mapped about 150m of infill sediments in Otago Harbour.
Ideally, the student working on this project will integrate new multi-channel seismic boomer and CHIRP data collected from small boats early in the year with sediment samples or perhaps even shallow cores to constrain the the history of sediment infill of the harbour.
It is also possible that the seismic imaging could identify the position of a fault that may control the orientation of Otago Harbour.
