East River Flats, a city park along the Mississippi River, was analyzed using Geometrics SmartSeis seismograph and 16 geophones. Refraction calculations and models were done using 1D and 2D time-term inversion methods. The results yielded a 3 layer model which consisted of a low velocity top soil, water saturated sand and gravel, and highly fractured Platteville formation limestone.
