In 2012–2013, an uncontrolled refraction seismic survey was carried out on the Kokkola–Kymi transect (KOKKY). The line replicates the previous findings from deep seismic studies, such as a thick ~64 km crust, the presence of a high-velocity layer in the lower crust, and high Vp/Vs ratios below the Wiborg rapakivi batholith.
