[1] We study how numerically predicted seismic anisotropy in the upper mantle is affected by several common assumptions about the rheology of the convecting mantle and deformation-induced lattice preferred orientations (LPO) of minerals. We also use these global circulation and texturing models to investigate what bias may be introduced by assumptions about the symmetry of the elastic tensor for anisotropic mineral assemblages. Maps of elasticity tensor statistics are computed to evaluate… CONTINUE READING
