This paper is a continuation of a previous publication (1938). The writers distinguish (1) shallow shocks, at depths not exceeding about 50 kilometers; (2) intermediate shocks, at depths from about 50 to 300 kilometers; (3) deep shocks. Separate maps are drawn for intermediate and for deep shocks, and new or revised determinations are presented and discussed. Previous conclusions as to mechanism and origin remain unmodified.
