Seismic heterogeneity in the mantle � strong shear wave signature of slabs from joint tomography

Kennett, Brian; Gorbatov, A.


The primary source of information on heterogeneity within the Earth comes from seismic tomography. A powerful tool for examining the character of heterogeneity comes from the comparison of images of bulk-sound and shear wavespeed extracted in a single inversion, since this isolates the dependencies on the elastic moduli. However, particularly in such multi-parameter inversions there are many hidden facets which can have a strong influence on the results, such as the weightings between...[Show more]
