3D2016_03Sv is the latest Sv wave model of the upper mantle and transition zone based on the waveform modeling of 1,391,400 Rayleigh waves recorded between 1976 and March 2016. The use of approximate forward theory and modeling allows updating the model following the publication of the monthly CMT catalog. 3D2016_03Sv contains azimuthal anisotropy and achieves a lateral resolution of ~600 km in the upper mantle.

|Type||3-D Tomography Earth Model|
|Sub Type||SV wave velocity, Azimuthal anisotropy and peak to peak anisotropy|
|Short Description||3D2016_03Sv is the current update of our background model 3D2015_07Sv up to March 2016. It is based on the waveform modeling of 1,391,400 Rayleigh waves recorded between 1976 and March 2016. The tomographic model is built using the same automated scheme as background model presented in Debayle et al., GRL 2016.|

|Depth Coverage||40 to 1000 km|
|Data Set Description||We requested records from IRIS and RESIF data centers starting from the CMT catalog issued at the Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory of Columbia University. We requested all Rayleigh waveforms recorded on the LHZ channel by the virtual networks GSN_broadband,FDSN_all, and US_backbone between January 1976 and March 2016. We also used data from Program for Array Seismic Studies of the Continental Lithosphere (PASSCAL) experiments in Africa, Tibet, and New Zealand, fromthe SKIPPY temporary deployment in Australia and fromFrench temporary experiments in the Horn of Africa, French Polynesia, and in the Aegean-Anatolia region.|
