Fig. 13

A cartoon illustrating the small-scale melt pockets (small red patches) supplied from upwelling mantle materials beneath the northern Tien Shan (NTS). These melt pockets represent the scattering heterogeneities responsible for the fluctuating P-wave coda. The rectangle approximately denotes the scattering regions of interest beneath the study area. TL indicates the Tarim lithosphere and KL indicates the Kazakh lithosphere
