Finite-frequency tomography using regional P-waves, with application to the western Pacific upper mantle

Abstract:

This thesis aims to present the data measurement process, waveform modelling, full waveform sensitivity measurements, and inversion workflow, required to produce a P-wave tomography of the upper mantle, including the mantle transition zone, down to 1000km depth.

Improved seismic velocity models are needed: many tomography models do not include regional travel-time datasets. This is because the first arrivals identified in travel-time datasbases are not enough on their own to seismi...
