S U M M A R Y The differential attenuation for upper-mantle paths beneath northern Australia has been estimated using spectral ratio methods, both in a narrow frequency band near 0.6 Hz to obtain stable estimates for subsequent inversion and also over a broad frequency band up to 3–6 Hz to look at the frequency dependence of attenuation. The frequency dependence of the differential attenuation between Pand S-wave arrivals is estimated using a spectral ratio technique based on a power-law… CONTINUE READING
