Seismic and electromagnetic studies of the earth's crust: Great Slave Lake to Nahanni Butte
Principal Investigator: Eaton, David
Licenced Year(s): 1999 1996
Summary: Since the region of investigation (down to a depth of 50 km or more) is inaccessible, geophysical techniques will be used.

These echoes are recorded by surface instruments, and the data are processed to p...
