The stated aim of the paper was to provide for the nongeophysicist an up-to-date introduction to the usefulness of land seismic surveys in civil engineering. Applications of the seismic refraction method in depth-to-bedrock studies, excavation problems and geotechnical work were discussed and indications of the limitations were given. Emphasis was on the use of the results rather than on their collection and so, except where relevant, no mention was made of the principles and field practice of seismic surveys.
