P-wave velocity imaging and lithosphere structure of the Tibetan plateau

Qu, Chen; Xu, Yi; Yang, WenCai; Liu, XiaoYu; Wang, Sheng


Abstract:Using arrival data from seismic networks in western China, we inverted three-dimensional P-wave velocity structures of the Tibetan plateau and surrounding areas by the body-wave tomography technique. Based on the velocity variation and tectonic features in the crust and lithospheric mantle, our analysis focuses on the lower crust flow, mantle upwelling and lithospheric thinning, and their relations with Cenozoic volcanic activity and the rift system in southern Tibet. The results...[Show more]
