Compressional wave velocities are reported to pressures of 6 kb for 15 cores of greenstone. The experimental velocities for greenstone are shown to be similar to velocities obtained from seismic refraction measurements of layer 3 of the oceanic crust, thus suggesting that greenschist facies metamorphism may be important in lower oceanic crustal rocks.
