A methodology for examining soil-water characteristics of loess and loess-derived soils on Banks Peninsula, New Zealand Fenton CH; Yates K (2017)Loess and loess-derived soils cover much of Canterbury, from the foothills of the Southern Alps to the Pacific Coast. These soils are of variable thickness, ranging from several metres up to 40m at the base of slopes on ...
Hughes, Terrence Jon (University of Canterbury. Geology, 2002)This thesis project has examined the moisture dependency of shear strength in the loess soils of Banks Peninsula. These dominant silt materials are generally regarded as having an angle of internal friction between 25 and ...
