On the relationship between azimuthal anisotropy from shear wave splitting and surface wave tomography

  title={On the relationship between azimuthal anisotropy from shear wave splitting and surface wave tomography},

[1] Seismic anisotropy provides essential constraints on mantle dynamics and continental evolution. One particular question concerns the depth distribution and coherence of azimuthal anisotropy, which is key for understanding force transmission between the lithosphere and asthenosphere. Here, we reevaluate the degree of coherence between the predicted shear wave splitting derived from tomographic models of azimuthal anisotropy and that from actual observations of splitting.
