Abstract : In the report are given results obtained by ALPENS seismological staff during the two following studies: Refraction profiles through Sicily (E-W) giving the value of velocity versus depth. In particular, the investigators put into evidence the existence of a low velocity channel inside the earth's crust. Structure of the Moho-discontinuity under ALPENS stations in Morvan (France) giving a map of this doscontinuity as it is deduced from the travel time anomalies. (Author)
