Abstract: An in situ geophysical investigation consisting of surface refraction, surface vibratory, downhole and crosshole seismic tests was performed at the man-made water retaining structures at Folsom Dam and Reservoir Project, located on the American River approximately 23 miles northeast of Sacramento, CA. More specifically the investigation was performed at Dike 5, the Right and Left Wing Dams, and at Mormon Island Auxiliary Dam. The investigation was conducted to obtain compression-, shear-, and Rayleigh-wave (P-, S-,and R-wave) velocities as a function of depth within the dike and dams and their underlying foundations for input to the seismic stability analysis of these earthen retaining structures.
