Abstract : Seismic refraction investigations were conducted in the vicinity of the Solomon Islands in November and December of 1966 by the Hawaii Institute of Geophysics. This area, having been first determined anomalous and outlined by satellite observations, was further investigated and delineated using land and sea gravity techniques and seaborne magnetic observations preliminary to the refraction experiment. In conjunction with the seismic refraction studies additional magnetic and bathymetric data were obtained. Seismic reflection profiles using a sparker were made along and between the refraction lines. This report presents the narratives of the refraction and reflection cruises and preliminary results of the sparker investigations. (Author)
