Abstract:
This is a teleseismic study along the main N-S corridor of the LITHOPROBE Western Superior Transect. The objectives of the study are to determine the structure and physical properties of the subcrustal lithosphere in this region and to consider their implications concerning the accretionary model proposed for the western Superior Province.

Recording parameters: Data Stream 1 20HZ Channels 456 Sample rate 20 samples per second Data Format CO Filters Trigger Type CON Record Length seconds 3600 Problems: The only problems with the Reftek sites in this experiment were those created by low power conditions in late Oct and Nov. A snowfall in mid-Oct covered the solar panels and the batteries eventually drained. Propping up the panels so that they were facing South at a relatively steep angle would have solved this problem. In Nov the amount of daylight and direct sun is too small to sustain the batteries and again the sites became inactive about 2 weeks after the last servicing run.
