[SCG57-02] Estimation of seismic velocity discontinuity in the crust and uppermost mantle beneath the northern Kinki region
Receiver function analysis is used to estimate the shape and the depth of the subducting plate. For example, Shibutani et al. (2013) estimated the structure of the Philippine Sea plate beneath Kii Peninsula by linear array observation. Ueno et al. (2008) estimated the depth of Philippine Sea plate and Moho discontinuity beneath Chugoku and Kinki region. However, They used only permanent seismic stations. It is hard to compare with local heterogeneous structure. On the other hand, dense seismic observation network has conducted since November 2008 in the northern Kinki region. We have observed with 170 seismic stations. The interval between stations is about 5 km. Thus, we can do receiver function analysis with high resolution by using the data obtained from this dense seismic observation network. Sasaki (2011) did preliminary analysis with 56 seismic stations. In this presentation, we show the shape and the depth of seismic velocity discontinuity by receiver function analysis, and discuss the relationship between the shape and the depth of seismic velocity discontinuity and the distribution of the S-wave reflector by Aoki et al. (2013).
