GLImER
Global Lithospheric Imaging
                        using Earthquake Recordings









[HOME]


PROJECT DESCRIPTION

The objective of the project GLImER is to conduct a global survey of lithospheric interfaces using converted teleseismic body waves. Data from permanent and temporary seismic networks worldwide are processed automatically to produce global maps of key interfaces (Moho, intra-lithospheric interfaces, lithosphere-asthenosphere boundary). The seismic results are interpreted in conjunction with constraints from complementary fields of the earth sciences such as tectonics, geodynamics, petrology, and geochemistry. This provides a unique view of how the properties of these interfaces vary between different tectonic environments and thus how the interfaces relate to geological processes at work in these various environments. The results will be distributed to the scientific community in the form of data products through a web-based application.
