Data Services Products: EMC-Taiwan.TTT.KWR.2012 3D P-wave velocity model of Taiwan from travel-time tomography

Summary

Taiwan.TTT.KWR.2012 (Kuo-Chen, Wu & Roecker, 2012) is based on a travel-time tomographic method from active- and passive-source experiments of Taiwan Integrated Geodynamic Research (TAIGER) and other permanent seismic networks. Totally, ~2800 stations are used.
