Seismic anisotropy in northwestern Canada and eastern Alaska from shear wave splitting measurements
Contributor:Witt, Derek Richard
The Mackenzie Mountains are an actively uplifting and seismogenic mountain range that lies within the Yukon and Northwest Territories, Canada. The range is an eastward salient of the complexly deformed northern Canadian ...
Measuring seismic anisotropy in the mantle wedge of Japan's subduction system using shear wave splitting of SKS and SKKS waves
Mantle flow patterns can provide a better understanding of mantle deformation and composition in subduction systems. These flow patterns can be inferred by measuring seismic anisotropy. Previous anisotropy studies of ...
Indications of complex lithospheric structure around the Cheyenne Belt in the western U.S. based on shear wave splitting analysis
This study employs the method of shear wave splitting using a modified Silver and Chan methodology to produce constraints on the character of the upper mantle below the Cheyenne Belt suture zone (CB), North America. The ...
New method to test shear wave splitting : improving statistical assessment of splitting parameters, A
Contributor:Corbalán Castejón, Ana
Shear wave splitting has proved to be a very useful technique to probe for seismic anisotropy in the earth’s interior, and measurements of seismic anisotropy are perhaps the best way to constrain the strain history of the ...
