A velocity model for Vp, Vs, and Vp/Vs Ratio variations in the North American lithosphere from body wave travel times and surface wave dispersion.
|Title||Vp, Vs, and Vp/Vs Ratio variations in the North American lithosphere from body wave travel times and surface wave dispersion|
|Type||3-D Tomography Earth Model|
|Sub Type||Vp, Vs, and Vp/Vs ratio perturbations in %|
|Data Revision||r0.0 (revision history)|
|Short Description||Arrival times of teleseismic P, S, and Pn body waves were jointly inverted alongside Rayleigh wave phase velocities at periods of 5-290 s for variations in Vp and Vs. These variations were used to calculate Vp/Vs ratio perturbations.|
