... Abstract Construction of four-lane Interstate Highway 94, at the Streeter Branch of Northern Pacific Railway south of Fargo, North Dakota, encountered excessive ground water in silty sand. The underpass required special excavation with two stages of well points where “quicksand” was encountered...

It seems likely that he had, at least to some degree; his alignment had been pushed slightly to the west to avoid ‘quicksand’ problems encountered nearby during the earlier construction of the Union Canal. Furthermore, Stephenson indicated in correspondence that ‘symptoms of quicksand made...

...R. C. Selley Abstract The contorted bedding found in the Torridonian sandstones (Precambrian) on Skye and Raasay islands off the west coast of Scotland is considered to have been formed in place by the shifting of quicksand in a shallow-water environment. Slumping is rejected as an explanation...

... sandstone thought to represent crevasse fillings in levees. Quicksand slump structures were identified in conglomeratic sandstones. No marine beds were found. Lenticularity of both major and minor sedimentary units makes correlation between sections difficult, though siltstone sequences may be traced...

... by an earthquake at high tide. The earth shock induced a submarine slide of the sand in the outer part of the bay, which oversteepened the profile of the sand headward nearly to the head of the bay. Mya and other shells settled through the layer of quicksand while the sand was running out seaward. Living...

... expectable below wave base on a foreset slope. There, are combined the conditions for even bedding, for alternations of silt and mud, for gravity sliding, and for the intra-stratal crumpling by flowage of silts converted into soupy quicksand by upward-migrating water squeezed out of the compacting muds...

...CLAUDE W HIBBARD; ELMER S RIGGS Abstract A late Pliocene artesian spring basin in Meade County, Kansas, was a trap for animals that came to the spring for water. They were either trapped by quicksand or became mired in the bog area around the edge of the spring. Some of the larger mammals...
