Data Services Products: EMC-YS-P-H15 3D P-wave velocity model of Yellowstone

Summary

YS-P-H15 is a 3D P-wave velocity model of Yellowstone from joint inversion of local earthquake and teleseismic travel-time data

Description

Name YS-P-H15
Title 3D P-wave velocity model of Yellowstone from joint inversion of local earthquake and teleseismic travel-time data
Type 3-D Tomography Earth Model
Sub Type P-wave velocity (km/s) and perturbation (%)
Year 2015
Short Description   The model integrates local earthquake and teleseismic travel-time data into one inversion to constrain the 3-D P-wave velocity structures of Yellowstone from the upper mantle to the upper crust.

Depth Coverage -4 to 160 km (0 km refers to sea level)
Areal Coverage Yellowstone (latitude: 43.55°/45.2°, longitude: -111.55°/-109.75°)
 
Data Set Description [Huang et al. (2015)] Data set includes 47,815 P-wave first arrivals from 4,520 local earthquakes and 4,605 relative arrival times from 329 teleseismic earthquakes recorded by 81 stations from the Yellowstone, Teton, and Snake River Plain regional seismic networks, the NOISY array, and the EarthScope USArray.
