|Model Download||Mineral-3D-Vp-Vs_r0.0.nc (see metadata) is the above model in netCDF 3 Classic format.|
|Depth Coverage||0 to 9 km|
|Area||central Virginia (latitude 37.85° to 38.02°, longitude -78.09° to 77.86°)|
|Data Set Description||The three-dimensional P- and S-wave model for central Virginia is based on local earthquake tomography. The data consist of arrival times recorded by a temporary 12 station deployment following the Mw 5.7 2011 Mineral Virginia earthquake. The deployment ran from April, 2017 through November, 2018 and recorded several hundred aftershocks. The model presents a 3D image of velocity structure in the main aftershock region of the Mineral earthquake. Resolution is highest in the depth range 1 to 5 km.|
