A Method to Compute Three Dimensional Magnetospheric Equilibria with Dipole Tilt and its Application in Estimating Magnetic Flux Tube Volume
In this thesis we describe a new version of a magneto-friction model, which was developed for computing the magnetospheric equilibrium that includes an arbitrary Earth's dipole tilt and interplanetary magnetic field. We ...
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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
