[1] In this study we present a collection of high quality S wave splitting measurements in the southern Italy subduction system. We analyzed 76 deep earthquakes located within the descending slab using the method of Silver and Chan (1991) to determine the splitting parameters φ and δt. The local deep earthquakes allow us to analyze raypaths primarily sampling the slab and the wedge above it. Mainland Calabria is an outcropping forearc, enabling us to sample rays that propagate up the slab. S… CONTINUE READING
