The seismic refraction shooting experiments undertaken in the eastern Atlantic and on the neighbouring continental shelf are briefly described, and the results compared with previous work. The deep-sea results show that basaltic rocks lie immediately below the sedimentary layer, which is variable in thickness, with a mean of about 1 km. The basaltic rocks extend to the Mohorovičic discontinuity at a depth of between 9 and 13 km below sea-level. The results from the stations on the continental… 

Seismic Prospecting in the Western Approaches of the English Channel

Summary On the basis of the measured seismic velocities, the layering found at 25 seismic stations in the area of the Western Approaches of the English Channel is divided into four classes which are

SEISMIC-REFRACTION MEASUREMENTS IN THE ATLANTIC OCEAN BASINS, IN THE MEDITERRANEAN SEA, ON THE MID-ATLANTIC RIDGE, AND IN THE NORWEGIAN SEA

Seismic-refraction measurements in the western basins of the North Atlantic Ocean show that an average crustal section consists of ½–l km of low-velocity sediments and 4–6 km of oceanic crustal rock

Influences of Norwegian Sea overflow water on sedimentation in the northern North Atlantic and Labrador Sea

Reflection profiles and hydrographic data indicate that sedimentation in parts of the northernmost Atlantic and in the Labrador basin has been largely governed by the movement of bottom water derived

Enormous variations exist along rifted margins of the North Atlantic in the magmatic activity that accompanied continental breakup. The North Atlantic margins exhibit a full range of magmatic

A Study of the Crustal Structure beneath the Irish Sea

Summary An explosion study was undertaken in 1965 to investigate the structure of the crust in the Irish Sea area. The experiment was designed to permit the use of the time term approach to
