A review of crust and upper mantle structure beneath the Indian subcontinent

Singh, Arun; Singh, Chandrani; Kennett, B. L. N.


This review presents an account of the variations in crustal and upper mantle structure beneath the Indian subcontinent and its environs, with emphasis on passive seismic results supplemented by results using controlled seismic sources. Receiver function results from more than 600 seismic stations, and over 10,000 km of deep seismic profiles have been exploited to produce maps of average crustal velocities and thickness across the region. The crustal thickness varies from 29 km at the southern...[Show more]
