Earthquake study in southern California, 1948


S. K. Chakrabarty of Bombay was in residence at Pasadena for most of 1948. In October, 1948, R. E Ingram of the National University, Dublin, arrived for an academic year of study and research. A. Due-Rojo of Cartuja, Spain, W. Heiskanen of the Isostatic Institute, Helsinki, and R. Stoneley of Cambridge, England were also visitors for more or less extended periods, and provided much valuable material for discussion and investigation. Ivan Tolstoy spent several days searching the seismograms for evidence of SOFAR waves originating from submarine earthquakes. Several small examples were found. A much larger one has slice been identified on records of the earthquake of January 23, 1938, off Hawaii.
