Abstract : This report presents data compilations to aid in planning and site selection for the Marine Seismic System (MSS). Data are compiled for two geographic areas: the Northwest Pacific (40-56 N, 145-170 E) and the Kuril- Kamchatka earthquake region. Included for the Northwest Pacific are cultural, meteorological, oceanographic, geological, geophysical and seismological data to define the environment in which the potential MSS will operate. Kuril-Kamchatka earthquake zone data consist of seismic velocity structure of the crust and upper mantle and earthquake hypocenters.
