As part of the new SINOPROBE-02 initiatiave (Sinoprobe-02) and with funding from the NSF of China (40830316), we collected a 310 km of deep seismic reflection profile is crossing Bangong-Nujiang suture and Qiangtang terrane, successfully revealed details of thecrustl structures down to the Moho and possible deeper.
for anyone who still respects teaching as a vocation at the university level that can have results not reduced to cost-outcome analysis or 'teaching-learning outcomes' (the very language betrays the intellectual aridity); and for those who believe geophysics alone can pronounce the final word on crustal deformation and evolution and consider a high-resolution seismic reflection profile an end in itself rather than a fruitful beginning.

We're now very hopeful that the reflection profile records, which we use conventionally to extend the detail information we get from drill holes, will become more readable, and readable in terms of the oceanography of long-ago oceans," Winterer concludes.
A 50-kilometer reflection profile is comprised of approximately 1,000 individual shots, and thus records about 2 gigabytes of data.
