In 2011 at the Arctic Ocean were execution of seismic work to estimate the thickness and velocity of the major complexes of the sedimentary cover of the Arctic Ocean to study the external limits of the continental shelf of the Russian Federation on the criterion of one percent sedimentary cover. Seismic activities included: continuous reflection profiling (short streamer 600m) and reflection-refraction sounding (radio telemetry system BOX). This report describes the work of the reflection-refraction sounding.

Refracted waves usually removed for processing and interpretation of the marine seismic data. However, they can provide additional information about the structure of the section and the presence of local low velocity zone. In this work the seismic section of the refracted waves along the profile 5-AR (East Siberian Sea) was constructed. With help the refracted and reflected waves was detected the low-velocity anomaly due to hydrocarbon deposit. Made refinement of the structure of the upper part of the lifting of Wrangel. Showed the advantage of using refracted waves for processing of the multichannel marine seismic data. Proposed to use the refracted wave in the processing and interpretation of marine seismic data. Showed the original method of determining the low-velocity anomalies, wich located in the sedimentary rocks.

Consolidated crust in the North Barents basin with sediments 16-18. km thick is attenuated approximately by two times. The normal faults in the basin basement ensure only 10-15% stretching, which caused the deposition of 2-3. km sediments during the early evolution of the basin. The overlying 16. km of sediments have accumulated since the Late Devonian. Judging by the undisturbed reflectors to a depth of 8. s, crustal subsidence was not accompanied by any significant stretching throughout that time. Dramatic subsidence under such conditions required considerable contraction of lithospheric rocks. The contraction was mainly due to high-grade metamorphism in mafic rocks in the lower crust. The metamorphism was favored by increasing pressure and temperature in the lower crust with the accumulation of a thick layer of sediments. According to gravity data, the Moho in the basin is underlain by large masses of high-velocity eclogites, which are denser than mantle peridotites. The same is typical of some other ultradeep basins: North Caspian, South Caspian, North Chukchi, and Gulf of Mexico basins. From Late Devonian to Late Jurassic, several episodes of rapid crustal subsidence took place in the North Barents basin, which is typical of large petroleum basins. The subsidence was due to metamorphism in the lower crust, when it was infiltrated by mantle-source fluids in several episodes. The metamorphic contraction in the lower crust gave rise to deep-water basins with sediments with a high content of unoxidized organic matter. Along with numerous structural and nonstructural traps in the cover of the North Barents basin, this is strong evidence that the North Barents basin is a large hydrocarbon basin. © 2014.

Joint analysis of marine and airborne gravity surveys in the Arctic basin has been applied. Geophysical works were conducted with the use of Chekan-AM and Chekan-AM model Shelf-E gravimeters. The results of the surveys have confirmed the urgency and feasibility of detailed investigation of the Earth's gravitational field in the Arctic basin. © State Research Center of the Russian Federation Concern CSRI Elektropribor, JSC, 2016.

We apply shortest-path method of seismic ray tracing to irregular tetrahedral grid, which is useful for modelling highly heterogeneous media with complex geometry of interfaces. To combine low computational complexity with satisfactory accuracy we introduce specially organized interpolation of traveltimes on the second-order grid. The algorithm is extended on multiple arrivals. Performance of the algorithm is studied in numerical experiments. © 2010, European Association of Geoscientists and Engineers.
