|Sub Type||Shear-wave velocity (%)|
|Short Description||SEISGLOB2 is a global shear velocity tomographic model based on the joint inversion of S SS and ScS delay times, Rayleigh surface wave phase velocity perturbations and splitting and coupling coefficients of normal modes. It is parameterized laterally in spherical harmonics up to degree 40 and with 21 splines in depth (the same as in S40RTS (Ritsema et al. (2011))). The model values are in percent with respect to the reference model PREM (Dziewonski & Anderson (1981)).|
