Comparison of shear wave splitting and finite strain from the India-Asia collision zone

Abstract:

We investigate whether observations of shear wave splitting in Asia may be related to distributed strain of the lithosphere or to strain caused by motion of the Asian lithosphere over the deep mantle. The HS2-NUVEL angular velocity for Eurasia, and that of Minster and Jordan [1978], predict "absolute" plate motions that are a factor of at least 4 slower than the NNE relative motion of India with respect to stable Eurasia. Shear of the upper mantle beneath the south Asian lithosphere is theref...
