Phase tensor ellipses computed from the data. They are shown in map view for selected periods of approximately a 0.25 s, b 2 s, c 8 s, and d 16 s. They have been normalized by their maximum axis values and are colored with their skew values. Elongated ellipses and large absolute skew values indicate possible 3-D effects. The periods correspond to depths of approximately 2 km, 7 km, 14 km, and 21 km, respectively, from simple skin depth estimations. Induction vectors (arrows) are computed from the tipper data (site names are marked); they point away from conductors (i.e., Wiese convention). A scale arrow of magnitude 0.3 is shown. The approximate location of the Bayankhongor Ophiolite Belt is marked (dashed lines, as in Fig. 1). This feature appears to influence the phase tensors
