The use of a three-dimensional ray-tracing inversion algorithm has greatly enhanced the resolution of gradients and strong variations in wave speeds to create improved P wave tomographic images of the Mariana arc region. The images obtained from the Mariana arc region show relatively low amplitudes of heterogeneity due to the limited number of seismic stations in the area. Despite these limitations, detailed interpretations of the three-dimensional geometry and morphology of the Pacific Plate...[Show more]
