Description

In this project led by Meghan Miller and Brian Kennett (ANU), we aim to produce new 3-D seismic velocity structure models of the southwest region of Australia with new data collected by a two-year deployment of 25 passive seismic recorders for 2 years, coupled to two targeted deployments of 10 instruments, each for one year. In conjunction with previously collected geophysical datasets by our partners this project will allow the determination of structure in 3-D to lithospheric depths. The objective of this work is to provide a compilation of 3-D models of the crust and lithosphere, which will be an effective characterisation of the 3-D structure of the craton and its margins.

This project would augment Dr Yuan's current project "Precambrian Architecture of Western Australia". Dr Yuan would participate in the project by contributing 15% of his time for data collecting, seismic model developing and results integration. NO support is requested from MQ.
