Abstract : This ASSERT grant has greatly enhance the our progress on our core project (Grant number F49620-92-J-0438). The students supported by the ASSERT grant have regularly participated in the activities of the core grant. In particular, the DEEP PROBE and DELTA FORCE projects described below provided a life experience to these students who received an opportunity to travel and to participate in a major international scientific endeavor. This seismic field experiment was ambitious and has produced a large amount of interesting data. Through both the ASSERT and core grants, the University of Texas at El Paso (UTEP) geophysics group as been conducting a wide variety of geophysical studies in the southwestern U.S. The objectives of this project are to investigate lithospheric structure and seismic wave propagation in the area. This final year of the ASSERT effort project has been very active with the successful completion of DEEP PROBE seismic field project and continued progress on our efforts to obtain a good overall view of the geophysical properties of the region. Specific efforts are discussed below.
