Crustal and uppermost mantle velocity structure along a profile across the Pamir and southern Tien Shan as derived from project TIPAGE wide-angle seismic data

Mechie, J.; Yuan, X.; Schurr, B; Schneider, F.; Sippl, Christian; Ratschbacher, Lothar; Minaev, V.; Gadoev, M.; Oimahmadov, I.; Abdybachaev, U.; Moldobekov, B.; Orunbaev, S.; Negmatullaev, S.


Utilizing seismic refraction/wide-angle reflection data from 11 approximately in-line earthquakes, 2-D P- and S-velocity models and a Poisson's ratio model of the crust and uppermost mantle beneath the southern Tien Shan and the Pamir have been derived along the 400-km long main profile of the TIPAGE (TIen shan-PAmir GEodynamic program) project. These models show that the crustal thickness varies from about 65.5 km close to the southern end of the profile beneath the South Pamir through about...[Show more]
