Chicxulub Passive seismic experiment, Yucatan Peninsula, Mexico
Entry ID: PASSCAL_CHICXULUB_PASSIVE

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: The objectives of the above experiment were:
- To record seismic data from local, regional and teleseismic data
over the chicxulub impact structure.

- To study this data and determine if any anisotropy can be detected
in the crust due to radial or concentric fracturing caused by the
impact.

- To determine the shallow crustal structures by analysing
data from local and regional events and to determine the deep crustal
structure from analysis of teleseismic events.
