Abstract : During August, 1995, the Earth Sciences Division of Phillips Laboratory (PL/GPE) recorded a seismic refraction profile across the Wind River Mountains and adjacent Green River Basin using controlled explosions fired east of Lander, Wyoming, as part of the Deep Probe experiment. The Deep Probe Experiment was an ultra-large scale active seismic profile carried out by several US and Canadian universities and the Canadian Geological Survey with the goal of imaging the upper mantle of western North America. The main Deep Probe profile was oriented north-south from Edmonton, Alberta, to Crownpoint, New Mexico, a distance of 1900 km. An intermediate shot point was located approximately 50 km east of Lander, Wyoming, and provided the sources for the seismic profile described in this report The PL/GPE profile consisted of 47 shot-station points extending from Big Sandy, Wyoming, west to the Idaho-Wyoming border, a distance of 150 km.
