Abstract : The University of Texas at EL Paso (UTEP) geophysics group as been conducting a wide variety of geophysical studies in the southwestern U. S. which have involved the cooperation of numerous university and governmental groups. The objectives of this project were to use the results to investigate lithospheric structure and seismic wave propagation in the area. This final year of the project has been very active with the successful completion of a major seismic field project and continued progress on our efforts to obtain a good overall view of the geophysical properties of the region. In particular, our efforts have provided a much improved picture of lithospheric structure in the NTS region. The seismic field experiment was an ambitious effort which produced data out to offsets of greater than 1000 km.
