Full seismic waveform tomography for upper-mantle structure in the Australasian region using adjoint methods

Fichtner, Andreas; Kennett, Brian; Igel, Heiner; Bunge, Hans-Peter

Description

We present a full seismic waveform tomography for upper-mantle structure in the Australasian region. Our method is based on spectral-element simulations of seismic wave propagation in 3-D heterogeneous earth models. The accurate solution of the forward problem ensures that waveform misfits are solely due to as yet undiscovered Earth structure and imprecise source descriptions, thus leading to more realistic tomographic images and source parameter estimates. To reduce the computational costs, we...[Show more]
