CascadiaRidge2Trench Seismic:Velocity:Model
A 2-dimensional P-wave velocity model (MATLAB format) along the Oregon Transect (Line 1) of the Juan de Fuca Ridge-to-Trench study
This data set consists of a 2-dimensional P-wave velocity model and depth-to-reflectors from first-arrival travel-time tomography of OBS wide-angle refraction and reflection data acquired along the Oregon Transect (Line 1) of the Juan de Fuca Ridge-to-Trench study. The model is provided in both MATLAB and ASCII format with columns as defined below and within files. Here we present the MATLAB binary files - see the associated data set for the ASCII version of this model. The file contents is a Matlab structure (L1) with the following fields. Velocity model (L1.v) in km/s for all 107 depth intervals and 2090 x nodes. L1.v_masked is the same data masked to only contain velocity values in regions of good ray coverage. Depth to reflectors (L1.bat, L1.basement, L1.moho) for 2090 x nodes in km below sea level. L1.z provides depths for 107 z nodes in km below seafloor. L1.x provides distance in km along the transect from its western end. and L1.lon are provided for 2090 x nodes in decimal degrees. L1.lat0 and L1.lon0 provide the lat/lon coordinates in decimal degrees of the western end of the transect. The seismic velocity model is referenced in Horning et al., 2016 and in Canales et al., 2017 and details on acquisition and processing maybe found in those papers. The data set was generated as part of the project called Evolution and Hydration of the Juan de Fuca Crust and Uppermost Mantle: A Plate-Scale Seismic Investigation from Ridge to Trench. Funding was provided through NSF awards OCE10-29305,OCE10-29411.
Device Info
The data have been processed/modified to a level beyond that of basic quality control (e.g. final processed sonar data, photo-mosaics).
