Abstract

An inversion of a receiver function recorded at LNN Station LAC reveals a range of 1-D velocity structures that are consistent the observed waveform. The shear-velocity structure southeast of LAC is relatively simple, consisting of an approximately 30 to 34km thick crust. All models contain relatively sharp crust-mantle boundaries. The range of models can be roughly divided into two groups that differ mostly in the mid-to-lower crust. In contrast with the simplicity of the southeast receiver function, the receiver functions corresponding to the northwest and southwest show the influence of lateral velocity heterogeneity and can at best be discussed qualitatively. -from Authors
