Seismic wave attenuation beneath the Australasian region

Kennett, Brian; Agus, Abdulah


The attenuation of seismic waves is strongly influenced by temperature and rheological changes, and so provides an important supplement to information from seismic wavespeeds. Differential attenuation measurements are made for seismic waves refracted through the mantle beneath the Australasian region and are then used to construct 3D images of the attenuation of shear and compressional waves. The differential attenuation between different seismic phases is estimated using a spectral ratio...[Show more]
