Shear wave heterogeneity in the lower mantle from seismic tomography

Abstract:

To date, most shear velocity heterogeneity models in the lower mantle have been derived using long period data. Comparatively little use has been made of the vast ISC database of shear wave arrival times, which covers the years 1964 to 1991. The aim of this study is to use this database to construct global models of shear wave heterogeneity in the lower mantle and compare it with existing P models using similar period data in order to evaluate the hypothesis that P and S heterogeneity are...
