Volatile cycling and the thermal evolution of planetary mantle
The thermal histories of terrestrial planets are investigated using two parameterized mantle convection models for either Earth like planets and planets with no active plate tectonics. Using parameterized models of mantle ...
Imaging the Pacific Plate and transition zone beneath eastern Asia with receiver functions
In this thesis, I applied receiver function techniques to the data recorded by national and regional broadband seismic networks of the China Earthquake Administration to image the mantle transition-zone structure beneath ...
Seismic imaging with traveltime and waveform inversion: Naga Thrust and Fold Belt, India
I demonstrate the utility of traveltime and waveform inversion in depth imaging of seismic data with the help of two 2-D multichannel seismic lines, Reg-07 and PO-03, shot perpendicular to the trend of the Naga Thrust and ...
Three-dimensional seismic structure of the Leeward Antilles arc from seismic refraction and refraction and reflection tomography
We have developed new velocity and Moho interface models for the Dutch Antilles region of the Leeward Antilles arc from independent and simultaneous 3-D inversion of first arrival and PmP traveltimes. The first arrival and ...
Localized waveform inversion applied to the D" region in teleseismic imaging
A localized waveform inversion technique based on hybrid modeling was developed to investigate the shear wave velocity structure of the lowermost mantle. Utilizing ray theory and the Kirchhoff integral, the source wavefield ...
Strength envelopes for deforming oceanic lithosphere with some implications for the history of lithospheric deformation of the equatorial Indian Ocean
Strength envelopes for oceanic lithosphere inferred from laboratory experiments indicate that the oceanic lithosphere in the central Indian basin is several times stronger (≈27 TN m -1 ) than the force available to drive ...
