Shear-wave and compressional-wave velocities of 26 basalt samples collected at Site 504 during Deep Sea Drilling Project Legs 69 and 70 were measured at elevated confining pressures. The young basalts have higher velocities than average DSDP basalts, because of their lack of alteration. Measurements of sample porosity are combined with laboratory and in situ velocity measurements to yield estimates of total crustal porosity: 13% at the top of Layer 2, and very low porosity below a depth of 2.0 km.
