Velocity and attenuation structure of the mantle: constraints from differential properties of shear waves

Abstract:

Although much progress has been made in determining the three dimensional distribution of seismic wave velocities in the Earth, substantially less is known about the three dimensional distribution of intrinsic attenuation. In this study variations in attenuation and shear velocity of the Earth's mantle are constrained using measurements of differential travel time and attenuation.

The data are broadband displacement SH seismograms filtered to have energy in the period range 8 t...
