Summary

Seismic investigations were made on the island of Sakhalin and in the surrounding waters during the period 1960–1965. These studies indicate the existence of as many as three identifiable seismic discontinuities in the earth's crust. The depths of these discontinuities vary considerably; the discontinuities are not identifiable in all areas. General results of the seismic studies and two illustrative profiles are presented.
