Summary

A 3D shear-wave velocity model of the US from joint inversion of surface wave dispersion from ambient noise and earthquakes, Rayleigh wave H/V ratio, and receiver functions

Description

Name US.2016
Title 3D shear-wave velocity model of the US from joint inversion of surface wave dispersion from ambient noise and earthquakes, Rayleigh wave H/V ratio, and receiver functions
Type 3-D Tomography Earth Model
Sub Type shear wave velocities
Year 2016
Short Description   The model is based on a joint Monte Carlo inversion of Rayleigh wave phase and group velocity from ambient noise, Rayleigh wave phase velocity from earthquakes, Rayleigh wave H/V ratio from earthquakes, and receiver functions collected from ~1800 Earthscope USArray stations between 2005 to 2015.

Mantle shear wave speeds
[Shen, W. & Ritzwoller, M.H., 2016] Mantle shear wave speeds at three depths, presented as the mean of the posterior distribution at each location: (a) 70 km depth, (b) 90 km depth, and© 120 km depth. Vs values are averaged vertically within 5 km of each stated depth.
