Abstract : Research projects in a number of different branches of seismology are discussed. These include instrumentation, data processing, source studies, static fields, free oscillations, field observations, discriminates, fault slip, tectonic strain, earth tides, fluid injection, waves in layered media, acoustic gravity waves, spectral ratios, focal depth, magnitudes, atmospheric explosions and synthetic seismograms. Twenty six scientific papers and technical reports were published under this contract. The report gives a brief description and complete bibliography. (Author)
