Upper-mantle flow beneath French Polynesia from shear wave splitting

Fontaine, Fabrice; Barruol, Guilhem; Tommasi, Andrea; Bokelmann, Gotz H.R.


Upper-mantle flow beneath the South Pacific is investigated by analysing shear wave splitting parameters at eight permanent long-period and broad-band seismic stations and 10 broad-band stations deployed in French Polynesia from 2001 to 2005 in the framework of the Polynesian Lithosphere and Upper Mantle Experiment (PLUME). Despite the small number of events and the rather poor backazimuthal coverage due to the geographical distribution of the natural seismicity, upper-mantle seismic anisotropy...[Show more]
