The cross hole seismic test is a part of geophysical exploration. The cross-hole seismic test can effectively determine the velocity of shear waves created as the result of an impact on a given soil layer.

The fundamental of the cross-hole seismic testing procedure is illustrated in Figure 3.47, which shows two drilled into the soil a distance L apart. A vertical impulse is created at the bottom of the borehole using an impulse road. A vertically sensitive transducer records the shear wave which is created from impulse. The vertical shear waves can be calculated as the following formula:
Where t = travel time of the waves.
The shear modulus Gsof the soil at the depth at which the test is taken can be determined from the relation
