Seismic reflection and refraction surveys were made on the eastern coastal plain of the United States near Franklin and Boykins, Virginia, to investigate the thickness of the coastal plain sediments. Seismic reflection data indicated a total thickness of 990 feet near Franklin, and 575 feet near Boykins. Seismic reflections from the base of the unconsolidated sedimentary section were well-recorded at both locations. Computer analysis of the reflection data revealed additional reflections from within the sedimentary section which were not clearly evident on the field records. (Author)
