The second field test to demonstrate the feasibility of applying sophisticated continuous seismic reflection techniques to the solution of geologic problems in the deep basement was conducted during October-November 1975 by the Consortium for Continental Profiling (COCORP) at a site spanning the eastern margin of the Albuquerque-Belen Basin of the Rio Grande Rift in central New Mexico. The work was funded by the National Science Foundation and is part of the U.S. program for the International Geodynamics Project.
