[1] We combine a new, large data set of surface wave phase anomalies, long-period waveforms, and body wave travel times to construct a three-dimensional model of the anisotropic shear wave velocity in the Earth's mantle. Our modeling approach is improved and more comprehensive compared to our earlier studies and involves the development and implementation of a new spherically symmetric reference model, simultaneous inversion for velocity and anisotropy, as well as discontinuity topographies…

Apparent Splitting of S Waves Propagating Through an Isotropic Lowermost Mantle
TLDR
By computing waveforms at a period > 6 s for a wide range of 1‐D and 3‐D Earth structures, it is illustrated that a time shift between S V and S H may appear in purely isotropic simulations, which may be misinterpreted as shear wave anisotropy.
