Large variations in travel times of mantle-sensitive seismic waves from the South Sandwich Islands: Is the Earth's inner core a conglomerate of anisotropic domains?

Tkalcic, Hrvoje

Description

Cylindrical anisotropy in Earth's inner core has been invoked to account for travel times of PKP core-sensitive seismic waves, such as from the South Sandwich Islands (SSI) earthquakes observed in Alaska, which depart from predictions. Newly collected travel-time residuals from seismic waves from the SSI region that sample only Earth's mantle (PcP and P waves) have a comparable range to the PKP differential travel-time residuals, yet they are insensitive to core structure. This observation...[Show more]
