Depth Coverage
Area Permian Basin region (latitude: 30.0°/33.0°; longitude: -105.0°/-102.2°)
 
Data Set Description The models include: 1) Moho depth values. 2) Crustal Vp/Vs ratio values. 3) Sedimentary velocity discontinuity depth values. And 4) Sedimentary Vp/Vs ratio. We obtained 3120 receiver functions in the Permian Basin region, and then applied waveform fitting method to derive the depth and Vp/Vs ratio models. The sedimentary velocity discontinuity refers to the first-order velocity discontinuity in sediment basin, above the basin basement. Sea level is zero depth.
