The Hawaiian SWELL pilot experiment—Evidence for lithosphere rejuvenation from ocean bottom surface wave data


During the roughly year-long Seismic Wave Exploration in the Lower Lithosphere (SWELL) pilot experiment in 1997/1998, eight ocean bottom instruments deployed to the southwest of the Hawaiian Islands recorded teleseismic Rayleigh waves with periods between 15 and 70 s. Such data are capable of resolving structural variations in the oceanic lithosphere and… (More)
