A seismic refraction profile across Langeland (Denmark) obtained from land stations recording airgun shots allowed to resolve upper crustal velocities to a depth of 8 km. The profile traverses the proposed Caledonian Deformation Front and the Ringkoebing-Fyn High. The Ringkoebing-Fyn High is about 10 km wide and the top basement lies less than 2 km below the surface. Basement velocities as high as 6.4 km/s, at depths between 6 and 8 km, can be best explained by compositional changes between adjoining basement units to the north and south. South of the Ringkoebing-Fyn High another high velocity basement unit is encountered and most probably represents a basement affected by the Caledonian orogeny. Along this profile on Langeland the positions of the Caledonian Deformation Front and the northern limit of the Zechstein deposits coincide.
