Seismic-refraction measurements in Jackson Hole, Wyoming
Three reversed seismic-refraction profiles were recorded in the Jackson Hole, Wyoming, area during July 1964. The seismic model which was developed consists of three layers with velocities of 2.4 km/sec for Tertiary and Cretaceous rocks above the Cleverly Formation (Lower Cretaceous), 3.8 km/sec for rocks from Lower Cretaceous down to lower Paleozoic, and 6.1 km/sec for lower Paleozoic (limestones and dolomites) and Precambrian rocks. The maximum thickness of sediments in Jackson Hole is 5 km, and the minimum throw of the Teton fault in the area covered by this survey is about 7 km.
