High-frequency ambient noise tomography of southeast Australia: New constraints on Tasmania's tectonic past

Young, Mallory; Rawlinson, Nicholas; Arroucau, Pierre; Reading, Anya M; Tkalcic, Hrvoje

Description

The island of Tasmania, at the southeast tip of Australia, is an ideal natural laboratory for ambient noise tomography, as the surrounding oceans provide an energetic and relatively even distribution of noise sources. We extract Rayleigh wave dispersion curves from the continuous records of 104 stations with ∼15 km separation. Unlike most passive experiments of this type, which observe very little coherent noise below a 5 s period, we clearly detect energy at periods as short as 1 s, thanks...[Show more]
