Summary. The Oblique Seismic Experiment (OSE) has been proposed to increase the usefulness of the IPOD crustal borehole as a means of investigating layer 2 of oceanic crust. Specific objectives are: to determine the lateral extent of the structure intersected by the borehole, to analyse the role of cracks in the velocity structure of layer 2, to look for anisotropy which may be caused by large cracks with a preferred orientation and, finally, to measure attenuation in oceanic crust. The first… Expand
Costa Rica Rift Borehole Seismic Experiment, Deep Sea Drilling Project Hole 504B, Leg 92
An Oblique Seismic Experiment (OSE) was carried out down DSDP Hole 504B, located south of the Costa Rica Rift (crustal age: 5.9 m.y.). A velocity-depth function with upper crustal velocities greaterExpand

A bore-hole seismic experiment was carried out in Deep Sea Drilling Project Hole 504B, in the Costa Rica Rift area of the east Pacific. In this experiment the clamped bore-hole geophone was deployedExpand
Lateral heterogeneity in the seismic structure of upper oceanic crust, western North Atlantic
We carried out a borehole seismic experiment at Deep Sea Drilling Project hole 418A in order to study the vertical and lateral velocity variations in 100-m.y.-old oceanic crust. We clamped aExpand
A study of the seismic structure of upper oceanic crust using wide-angle reflections
The lateral homogeneity of oceanic crust on the scale of a seismic experiment is a condition that most methods of seismic interpretation depend on. Whether this condition is in fact true is largelyExpand

Within the last decade a new picture of the oceanic crust has emerged from advances in seismic experimental design, instrumentation, and analysis techniques. In this new picture, layer 2 is a regionExpand
Lateral heterogeneity in the upper oceanic crust at Deep Sea Drilling Project Site 504
The lateral variability of the upper oceanic crust can be studied by mapping the amplitude (or power) content of arrivals from a dense array of identical sources to a single receiver. In this paperExpand
