Seismic Station Installation in Isparta, Turkey and Surrounding Regions

Topics: geology seismology

Research conducted this summer was in preparation for field deployment beginning August 5, 2006, in Isparta, Turkey. During this experiment temporary seismic stations will be installed and monitored. Data collected will be shared among several research teams on a variety of projects. At the University of Missouri-Columbia the data will be utilized to study anisotropic flow within the mantle. Local shear waves will be analyzed to determine the degree of “splitting,” indicating the direction of “fast” mantle flow. Directions and velocities will be compared to published SKS data in hope of constraining the vertical location of mantle anisotropy.
