Lateral variation of the uppermost oceanic plate in the outer-rise region of the Northwest Pacific Ocean inferred from Po-to-s converted waves
By: Tonegawa et al (2018)
Featured article by Tonegawa et al (2018):
It has been known that Po waveforms are complicated due to high-frequency scattering within the mantle, but Tonegawa et al (2018) attempted to retrieve Po-to-s (Pos) waves converted at crust-related interfaces by cross-correlating Po wave coda from the radial and vertical components. As a result, their results successfully showed the retrieval of Pos waves from the basement and oceanic Moho, and also demonstrated the effectiveness of this new approach by revealing lateral variations of Pos-wave emergence and layer-dependent shear wave anisotropy from the outer-rise to seaward regions.
