Abstract

In 1957–58 during the program of the IGY a complex geophysical investigation was carried out of the transition zone from the Asiatic continent to the Pacific Ocean, an important part of which is the Kurile Islands region. These projects included deep seismic sounding (DSS) and aeromagnetic and gravimetric surveys. In addition, in 1948 on Kamchatka and later on the Kurile Islands a network of regional seismic stations was developed that, along with the data of the seismic net of the USSR, made it possible to obtain many new characteristics of the seismic regime of this region. Beginning in 1958 the Pacific Ocean Seismic Expedition worked in the South Kuriles and produced detailed seismic investigations here.
