Mantle upwelling beneath Madagascar: evidence from receiver function analysis and shear wave splitting

Paul, Jonathan D.; Eakin, Caroline


Crustal receiver functions have been calculated from 128 events for two three-component broadband seismomenters located on the south coast (FOMA) and in the central High Plateaux (ABPO) of Madagascar. For each station, crustal thickness and Vp/Vs ratio were estimated from H- κ plots. Self-consistent receiver functions from a smaller back-azimuthal range were then selected, stacked and inverted to determine shear wave velocity structure as a function of depth. These results were corroborated by...[Show more]
