Finite-frequency Rayleigh wave tomography of the western Mediterranean: Mapping its lithospheric structure
(American Geophysical Union, 2014)
 We present a 3-D P wave velocity model of the crust and shallowest mantle under the Italian region, that includes a revised Moho depth map, obtained by regional seismic travel time tomography. We invert 191,850 Pn and Pg wave arrival times from 6850 earthquakes that occurred within the region from 1988 to 2007, recorded by 264 permanent seismic ...
Lithospheric expression of cenozoic subduction, mesozoic rifting and the Precambrian Shield in Venezuela
We have combined surface wave tomography with Ps and Sp receiver-function images based on common-conversion-point (CCP) stacking to study the upper mantle velocity structure, particularly the lithosphere–asthenosphere boundary (LAB), beneath eastern and central Venezuela. Rayleigh phase velocities in the frequency range of 0.01–0.05 Hz (20–100 s in ...
Slip partitioning along an idealized subduction plate boundary at deep slow slip conditions
Below the base of many subduction seismogenic zones, the plate interface periodically slips at rates 1 to 2 orders of magnitude faster than tectonic plate velocities. A number of competing hypotheses exist to explain the mechanisms for these slow slip events (SSEs), but they remain incompletely tested because we do not know how deformation is partitioned ...
