  1. 1. Strain quantifications in different tectonic scales using numerical modelling

    Detta är en avhandling från Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Författare :Lukas Fuchs; Uppsala universitet.; [2016]
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Deformation modelling; progressive and finite deformation; salt tectonics; down-built diapir; upper mantle; lithosphere-asthenosphere boundary; seismic anisotropy; plate-mantle de coupling; Geovetenskap med inriktning mot mineralogi; petrologi och tektonik; Earth Science with specialization in Mineral Chemistry; Petrology and Tectonics;

    Sammanfattning : This thesis focuses on calculation of finite and progressive deformation in different tectonic scales using 2D numerical models with application to natural cases. Essentially, two major tectonic areas have been covered: a) salt tectonics and b) upper mantle deformation due to interaction between the lithosphere and asthenosphere. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Analyses of Seismic Wave Conversion in the Crust and Upper Mantle beneath the Baltic Shield

    Detta är en avhandling från Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Författare :Sverker Olsson; Uppsala universitet.; [2007]
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Geophysics; converted waves; Moho; upper mantle; Baltic Shield; tomography; anisotropy; receiver function; Geofysik;

    Sammanfattning : Teleseismic data recorded by broad-band seismic stations in the Swedish National Seismic Network (SNSN) have been used in a suite of studies of seismic wave conversion in order to assess the structure of the crust and upper mantle beneath the Baltic Shield. Signals of seismic waves converted between P and S at seismic discontinuities within the Earth carry information on the velocity contrast at the converting interface, on the depth of conversion and on P and S velocities above this depth.

  3. 3. Dynamic Source Models of Icelandic Earthquakes and Teleseismic Tomograhy along the TOR array

    Detta är en avhandling från Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Författare :Z. Hossein Shomali; Uppsala universitet.; [2001]
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Earth sciences; Geovetenskap; NATURAL SCIENCES Earth sciences; NATURVETENSKAP Geovetenskap; Geofysik med inriktning mot seismologi; Geophysics with specialization in Seismology;

    Sammanfattning : This thesis describes new inversion-oriented methodological developments and their seismological applications. In the first study presented the dynamic source parameters of some local Icelandic earthquakes are studied by employing a time domain moment tensor inversion method. LÄS MER
