Model Download US-Crust-Upper-mantle-Vs.Porter.Liu.Holt.2015_kmps.nc — is the netCDF binary for the above model expressed as shear velocity in km/s
Depth Coverage 0 to 300 km, (best resolution 5-150 km)
Areal Coverage Continental US (latitude: 28°/49°, longitude: -125°/-60°)
 
Data Set Description [Porter et al., (2016)] The dataset includes shear velocities calculated from the inversion of Rayleigh wave phase velocities determined from ambient noise and wave gradiometry analyses. Data were primarily collected by the EarthScope USArray.
 
Supplemental Information The supplemental information page for this model contains phase velocity, crustal, and sediment thickness maps.
