Abstract : Seismic comparisons are made between the GASBUGGY explosion and an earthquake which had a nearly identical epicenter. Utilizing travel time residuals derived from the GASBUGGY arrival data, the earthquake epicenter is relocated 35 km NNE of the GASBUGGY shotpoint. The corrected epicenter of the earthquake and the true GASBUGGY location are located approximately 5 km WNW of their respective uncorrected epicenters, which indicates that the travel time anomalies are consistent for the region between and including the two sources.
