Bayesian inference for deep earth structure using body waves and free oscillations of the earth

Pachhai, Surya


Seismological observations reveal the strongest heterogeneities in the Earth's lowermost mantle. Ultralow velocity zones (ULVZs) are small-scale structures that cannot be detected in the tomographic images of the lowermost mantle derived from a large collection of body-wave travel time residuals or waveform inversion. These zones are characterised by a sharp decrease in velocity and an increase in density with respect to the ambient mantle. The distribution of heterogeneities in the lowermost...[Show more]
