[1] Moho depth and Vp/Vs estimates from stacking phases of receiver functions along the Aleutian island arc give new constraints on its composition and structure. They expand on the current understanding of island arcs and their relationship to continental crust production. We also present an approach for including constraints from active-source data in receiver function analysis in a region with sparse data coverage to complement this analysis. Moho depth averages 37.5 km with an average… CONTINUE READING
