  1. 1. An Isostatic Earth Crustal Model : and Its Applications

    Author : Mohammad Bagherbandi; Lars E. Sjöberg; Martinec Zdeněk; KTH; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; Crustal thickness; inverse isostatic problem; isostasy; isostatic compensation; Moho depth; Moho density contrast; downward continuation; Earth sciences; Geovetenskap;

    Abstract :  The Mohorovičič discontinuity (Moho), which is the surface separating the Earth’s crust from the mantle, is of great interest among geoscientists. The Moho depth can be determined by seismic and gravimetric methods. READ MORE

  2. 2. Seismic imaging of deep crustal reflectivity in Sweden and Iceland

    Author : Niklas Juhojuntti; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Geophysics; seismic; reflectivity; Moho; crust; signal; Geofysik; Geophysics; Geofysik; Geofysik med inriktning mot seismologi; Geophysics with specialization in Seismology;

    Abstract : Seismic reflection profiling, originally developed by the petroleum industry, was adapted to systematic imaging of deep structures some 25 years ago. In continental areas, these measurements often show weakly reflective upper crust and strongly reflective lower crust. READ MORE

  3. 3. Seismic Studies of Paleozoic Orogens in SW Iberia and the Middle Urals

    Author : Artem Kashubin; Christopher Juhlin; Lars Nielsen; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Reflection seismics; Traveltime tomography; Uralian orogeny; Variscan orogeny; Crustal structure; Geophysics; Geofysik;

    Abstract : Controlled source seismic methods were employed in this study to investigate the reflectivity and velocity structure of two Hercynian orogens – the Uralides and Variscides. Conventional common depth point (CDP) sections from five reflection seismic campaigns and a velocity model obtained from tomographic inversion of wide-angle observations were the main datasets studied from the Middle Urals.

  4. 4. Geophysical Studies Bearing on the Origin of the Arctic Basin

    Author : Nina Lebedeva-Ivanova; Christopher Juhlin; David Gee; Ruth Jackson; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : refraction seismic; reflection seismic; crustal structure; Arctic Ocean; Amerasia Basin.; Geofysik med inriktning mot seismologi; Geophysics with specialization in Seismology;

    Abstract : Deep troughs and ridges of the Arctic Basin are some of the least known features of the Earth's crust. Some of the ridges, eg. Chukchi and Nordwind, are connected directly to the continental shelves and are certainly submarine promontories of the latter. READ MORE

  5. 5. GPS for Geophysics: Glacial Isostatic Adjustment and Tests of Ionospheric Models

    Author : Sten Bergstrand; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; rheology; noise; crustal deformation; horizontal movement; time series analysis; ionosphere; GPS; NeQuick;

    Abstract : This dissertation is divided into two parts that separately utilize high precision Global Positioning System (GPS) satellite observations for inferences of solid earth and ionospheric parameters.In the first part of the dissertation, solid earth movements in Sweden and Finland are observed with GPS at a precision of the order 0.1 mm/yr.
