Lee, Myung W., Hutchinson, Deborah R.,, 1990, True-amplitude processing techniques for marine, crustal-reflection seismic data: U.S. Geological Survey Bulletin B 1897
Three relative true-amplitude processing techniques (automatic edit, single-trace equalization, and a common-depth-point gather equalization) are presented in this report on deep crustal seismic data. This study indicates that the automatic editing procedure provided substantial improvement of signal-to-noise ratio and shows that post-stack amplitude balancing was commonly necessary to maintain the lateral continuity of the deep reflections and to reduce migration noise. This technique was applied to the seismic data acquired for the Great Lakes Multidisciplinary Program on Crustal Evolution and confirms the existence of large differences in crustal reflectivities.

The results of a study of the physiographic and subsurface effects of two thermonuclear explosions at Enewetak Atoll, Marshall Islands, are presented in eight chapters. Field work in the submarine craters, conducted from June-September, 1984, included echo-soundings, sidescan-sonar imaging, seismic-reflection and refraction, and direct observations and sampling by scuba and submersible. The larger of the two craters, known as OAK, cuts into the atoll's reef on its northwestern side and is rimmed on its southeastern side, in the lagoon, by mounds of debris. The crater has a radius of about 600 m from ground zero to the 5-m isobath (along the reef) and is 60 m deep. The geometry of an acoustically transparent pond of sediment indicates that the transient crater was as deep as 110 m below sea level and had a radius of 400 to 500 m from ground zero. Subsurface reflecting layers are downwarped as deep as 280 m, and fracturing may extend as deep as 425 m. The smaller of the two craters, KOA, was excavated from an island and surrounding reef. It has a radius of about 500 m to the 5-m isobath and is 33 m deep. Subsurface reflecting layers are downwarped as deep as 230 m. The remains of structures emplaced as part of the test program suggest that the maximum radius of the transient crater is about 430 m.
