Depth Coverage 0 to 105 km
Areal Coverage Broader region of the Middle East, including Iranian Plateau, Zagros, Turkish-Anatolian Plateau, the Caucasus, the Arabian Plate, Red Sea, Afar and eastern Mediterranean latitude: 8.0°/44.0° @0.25°, longitude: 24.0°/63.75° @0.25°
 
Data Set Description The model uses group velocity dispersion curves obtained from ambient-noise cross-correlation and regional earthquakes for the 3-D shear-wave velocity structure of the curst and uppermost mantle beneath the Middle East.
Supplemental Information

Examples of shear-wave velocity maps at depths
Examples of shear-wave velocity maps at depths 8, 15, 25, 35, 45, 55, 70 and 90 km covering the whole Middle East. Note that color scale changes for each map to enhance lateral velocity contrasts.
