  • Cellars and possibly dungeons were dug directly into the bedrock beneath the tower.
  • This instrument uses multiple channels and a large range of radar frequencies to image internal ice layering and bedrock beneath ice sheets.
  • The bedrock beneath the dam has to be re-grouted and the crest of the dam settled too much, required it to be repaired.
  • The bedrock beneath the area was created by basalt flows laid down during the Pliocene and Pleistocene epochs.
  • Iwamuro lies on a fault zone between Yahiko mountain and the bedrock beneath the Niigata Plain.
  • The bedrock beneath the park is two billion year old granite, which is overlain by 600 million year old Cambrian sandstone.
  • The aggregates left by glacial drift and wind-deposited loess form a cap deposited some 450 million years after the bedrock beneath.
  • Shatter cones are rare geological features that are only known to form in the bedrock beneath meteorite impact craters or underground nuclear explosions.
  • Also done at the time was a nine metre deep excavation of the bedrock beneath the library building, in order to provide more storage space, mechanical areas, and a link to an existing loading dock.
  • The earthquake was felt so far away, compared to earthquakes in other regions, because the old, rigid bedrock beneath much of the Midwest allows the tremor to propagate further.
  • A Terminal Classic burial was interred in an opening carved out of the bedrock beneath the plaza and was covered with limestone slabs.
  • The surface of the bedrock beneath soil cover is known as rockhead in engineering geology and identifying this, via excavations, drilling or geophysical methods, is an important task in most civil engineering projects.
  • Water released from Lake Oroville is used to produce electricity via Hyatt Powerplant, located in the bedrock beneath of and inside the core of Oroville Dam.
  • The bedrock beneath Swift Run Gap is 1.05 billion year old granitic rocks of the Blue Ridge basement complex.

  • To be constructed as joint venture between the Alyeska Pipeline Service Company and the State of Alaska, the bridge was to be supported by tiers anchored to bedrock beneath the river.
  • Debris (or till) in the ice also may abrade (glacial abrasion) the bed surface; should ice move down a slope it would have a 'sandpaper effect' on the bedrock beneath, on which it scrapes.
  • The initial step in the development of Hyden Rock was the subsurface alteration by weathering of granite bedrock beneath a lateritised land surface during the Cretaceous Period between 100-130 million years ago.
  • United Nuclear's Chief Operating Officer, J. David Hann, blamed the failure of dam on the pointed shape of the bedrock beneath the embankment, which he said acted as a fulcrum and weakened the dam.
