We use Pn phase travel time residuals to invert for mantle lid velocity and anisotropy beneath northern Arabia-eastern Anatolia continent-continent collision zone. The primary phase data were obtained from the temporary 29-station broadband PASSCAL array of the Eastern Turkey Seismic Experiment. These data were supplemented by phase data from available stations of the Turkish National Seismic Network, the Syrian National Seismic Network, the Iranian Long Period Array, and other stations around… CONTINUE READING
