Minnesota River Valley 1990 Wide-angle Experiment
Entry ID: PASSCAL_94-006

Abstract: In the summer of 1990, the University of Wyoming conducted a
wide-angle reflection/refraction experiment along the Minnesota River
Valley. The goal of the experiment was to image crustal structure and
determine the velocity of the crust beneath the Archean terrane.

A total of 180 SGRs and 33 6-channel REF TEK instruments were deployed
in a linear array with a spacing of 100 meters. Seven blasts from
four differend quarries provided the seismic energy.
