Variations in crustal structure across the transition from West to East Antarctica, Southern Victoria Land

Bannister, S; Yu, J; Leitner, B; Kennett, Brian


The crustal structure beneath Ross Island and the Transantarctic Mountains (TAM) in Southern Victoria Land, Antarctica, is inferred using non-linear inversion of receiver functions, derived from teleseismic earthquake data. Intermediate-period waveforms from more than 160 teleseismic earthquakes recorded between January 1994 and January 2000 were used in the analysis. The inversion results confirm a crustal thickness of 19-21 km beneath Ross Island, consistent with previous multichannel seismic...[Show more]
