Crustal Structure of the Eastern Snake River Plain Determined from Ray Trace Modeling of Seismic Refraction Data

  title={Crustal Structure of the Eastern Snake River Plain Determined from Ray Trace Modeling of Seismic Refraction Data},
  author={M. A. Sparlin and L. W. Braile},
Ray trace travel time modeling of the seismic refraction record sections for a profile from near Soda Springs, Idaho, to near McKay, Idaho, was used to derive a crustal model across the eastern Snake River Plain (ESRP). The derived crustal model is consistent with the velocity structure interpreted from a profile along the axis of the ESRP. The interpretation also indicates that significant lateral inhomogeneities exist in the upper crust beneath the ESRP when compared with the upper •rust… CONTINUE READING
