1). 1 The Shot Points The 1987 shots in the Pacific Ocean, close to the Chilean coast, were fired on the sea bottom from ships of the Chilean Navy at depths between 57 to 80 m. The charges varied between 50 and 250 kg of explosives (Pentolita) for the coast-parallel profiles in Chile and the reversed profiles to Chuquicamata and Pocitos (see Table 1; Wigger et al. 1991). The land shots located in salt lakes on the Argentine Puna (Pocitos, Olaroz and Tolar Chico) were fired in a pattern of 10 to 20 holes of 30 m depth, the charges varied between 500 and 1100 kg of explosive material (Pegagel).

6 kmls in the depth range of 35-40 km at the most western margin of the Altiplano. There is no evidence for a structured lower crust or a Moho reflection. The distance range of 300 to 470 km on the Tupiza-west profile (Fig. 12), which extends to the Pacific coast, is suitable to obtain information on the deep crustal or lithospheric structure beneath the Western Cordillera. However, the lack of any wave group in this distance range suggests low velocities and high attenuation for the crustal base and its footwall.

The 2D velocity model displays the calculated rays from SP 11.
