The purpose of this work was to study the seismic attributes of the Podvodnikov Basin basement. It was found that these attributes, first of all, P-wave velocities of 5.9–6.2 km/s, the ratio VP/VS = 1.71, and the diffraction nature of the reflections from the basement indicate that the basin has a continental origin and that its tectonic development began at the pre-oceanic stage of evolution of the Arctic.
