Crust and upper mantle shear velocity structure beneath the Tibetan plateau and surrounding regions from interevent surface wave phase velocity inversion

Abstract:

Average a priori shear velocity models are constructed for the Tien Shan, Tarim basin, Pamir-Hindu Kush, Himalaya and NE India. These models are shown to account for most of the lateral velocity heterogeneity at wavelengths > 1000 km. Interevent fundamental mode Rayleigh and Love wave phase velocities were measured in the period range 32-200 s and were inverted for path-averaged shear velocity structures. These, in turn, were regionalized to estimate average, isotropic structures beneath t...
