Abstract

A reconnaissance refraction survey was conducted on the Grand Banks, St. Pierre Banks, Cabot Strait Trough, and Banquereau. Three stations on the Grand Banks indicate sedimentary layers ranging from 2300 to 10,700 feet in thickness. The sediments are underlain by basement rocks having velocities of 16,150-18,200 ft/sec.
