Abstract

Seismic data were collected along a 1.5km long section near Squires Pond Park. These data along with Shell data for the area provided refraction and reflection information on subsurface structure of the area. -- Computer programmes were developed and implemented to process the refraction and reflection data and the data were interpreted in terms of geologic structure. An ideal synthetic seismogram was constructed and compared with the stacked section, and a good correlation was obtained. -- Two shallow reflectors and refractors at average depths about 75m and 175m were detected. The seismic interpretation agrees with the local geology and with the available gravity and magnetics interpretation.
