Love waves

observed and predicted love waves

a) Observed phase velocity map for Love waves at 40 s (Ekstrom et al., 1993; "ET&L"). b) Calculated crustal signal in the phase velocity map as predicted by our crustal model CRUST 5.1. c) Observed phase velocity map (a) corrected for crustal signal with the model CRUST 5.1 (b). d) Observed phase velocity map (a) corrected for crustal signal with the model from Soller et. al, 1982.
