Abstract

"The presence of the L (sub g) earthquake surface-wave phase, which is indicative of continental structure between the epicenter and recording station is used in the exploration of arctic regions. Water-covered areas of continental structure include the Canadian archipelago, parts of Baffin Bay and Davis Strait, the Barents Sea, Bering Strait, and the shallow parts of the Bering and Greenland seas. Areas of noncontinental structure include the Arctic Ocean, Beaufort Sea, Norwegian Sea, and the deep parts of the Bering and Greenland Seas."--Author's abstract. Methods are described and master list of earthquake shocks used in the study is presented with date, hour, geographic location (lat. and long.), and data on depth, magnitude, etc.
