While searching the web I found the following                         
online papers about the Upheaval Dome, which                          
can be downloaded as PDF files.

"The proposed seismic surveys of Upheaval Dome                        
in Canyonlands National Park has two objectives:                      
(1) establish or reject the concept of a salt                         
diapir below the central depression by timing                         
the arrivals of refracted waves passing between                       
the depression and the regional depth of the top                      
of the Paradox Formation; (2) obtain measurements                     
of the change in thickness of the major                               
sedimentary formations at different distances                         
from the center of Upheaval Dome. To achieve                          
these objectives a seismic reflection and                             
refraction survey will be conducted."
