    An up‐to‐date global compilation of crustal thickness and Pn velocity values from published seismic refraction and surface wave data has been created. From referenced sources, a total of crustal thickness and Pn velocity values have been selected. This represents a significant expansion of previous compilations. The inclusion of surface wave data results in a more uniform.

Ellesmere Island (the largest), the Parry group (Melville, Bathurst, Devon, Prince Patrick, and Cornwallis islands), and the Sverdrup group (Axel Heiberg, Ellef Ringnes, Amund Ringnes, and many smaller islands) are found there.

Parry Islands (roughly the western half of the Queen Elizabeth Islands) and the continental shelf and adjacent continental slope from approximately longitude °W. to °W. have been covered with aeromagnetic surveys.

The magnetic anomalies determined by these surveys afford a means of calculating the depth of the crystalline basement rocks.
