New constraints on the seismic structure of West Australia: Evidence for terrane stablization prior to the assembly of an ancient continent?

Reading, Anya; Kennett, Brian; Goleby, B

Description

We present a new, near-comprehensive survey of the variations in seismic structure across the West Australian craton at the scale of the main terrane groups. Analyzing data from distant earthquakes recorded at temporary and permanent stations located across the region, we found the best-fitting structure by modeling the conversions from P- to S-wave motion (the receiver function) that take place as the seismic energy travels upward through the lithosphere. Such methods can be used to delineate...[Show more]
