Project Abstract
Intellectual Merit SCEC has contributed greatly to our understanding of large-scale tectonic framework through providing a good three-dimensional crust and upper mantle models (Magistrale et al., 2000; Kohler et al., 2003). We have made progress in improving the SCEC Community Velocity Models (CVM 3.0) by using surface waves (Tanimoto and Prindle, 2002, 2006; Prindle and Tanimoto, 2006). SCEC has also revealed lithospheric anomalies through the Los Angeles Regional Seismic Experiment (LARSE), such as deep structure under the Peninsular Ranges and Moho offset from the mountainous topography that were fed into the fault block model (Fuis et al., 2001, 2003).
