The tectonic history of the Arctic Ocean Basin, and in particular the Canada Basin and the adjoining Beaufort Sea shelf, today remains unclear even after decades of geological and geophysical investigations. Reconstruction of the tectonic history of the margin requires information about the deep crustal structure of northern Alaska at the Beaufort Sea. In 1975 and 1976 a substantial amount of refraction data was successfully collected on the Alaskan shelf from an icebreaker. This technical report contains a detailed description of the methods and techniques used in the data collection and analysis. Interpretation of the data is the subject of articles to be submitted to professional journals. Author
