Over the last few decades, a number of wide-angle seismic experiments have been conducted in the Faroe-Shetland Channel area with the objective of mapping the crustal structure. However, the volcanic rocks covering most of the area present a challenge for the imaging of subbasalt structures. The results of the seismic studies are consistent in describing the Faroe-Shetland Channel as thinned continental crust and in establishing the presence of sub-basalt sediments. However, the various datasets often show differences in depth to crystalline basement and to the Moho. This paper presents a review of the velocity models in the Faroe-Shetland Channel and analyses the differences at line intersections. Down to top basalt the models are fairly consistent, while there are deviations of up to 1 km s
-1 in basalt velocities and sub-basalt sediment velocities, 2 km in basalt thickness, 3.2 km in depth to crystalline basement, and 11.7 km in depth to the Moho.
