Neil Chroston - School of Environmental Sciences, University of East Anglia

From 1936-1938, E.C.Bullard, T.F.Gaskell, W.B.Harland and C.Kerr-Grant of  the Department of Geodesy and Geophysics, established 26 seismic refraction lines in the south-western part of East Anglia. The aim of their survey was to investigate ‘the seismic method’, and in doing so to provide depths to the Palaeozoic floor. It resulted in a landmark paper in UK seismology ( Phil.Trans.R.Soc.Lond.,1940, 239A, 29-94).

The original field records have survived and are presented here.
