Abstract : This report covers the accomplishments of the seismological research program at the University of Nevada, for the period 1 May 1964 to 30 April 1966, under grant No. AF-AFOSR-646-64. Sections of the report treat (1) the establishment of new seismographic stations in the Nevada area; (2) development of new field instruments for studies of small- and micro-earthquakes; (3) publication of a Nevada earthquake catalog and epicenter map for the period 1852-1961; (4) automation of routine seismological analysis; (5) focal depth studies; (6) study of the structure of Kilauea Volcano, Hawaii; (7) seismicity studies; and (8) microearthquake studies. During the grant period, research was begun and/or completed which resulted in 3 graduate theses, a published map, a field trip guide, 7 abstracts of papers presented at scientific meetings, and 5 papers published in scientific journals.
