We use receiver functions computed from the 2018 M 7.3 Venezuela earthquake recorded along the SB2 profile of the Basin Amplification Seismic INvestigation (BASIN) project to map the Moho discontinuity and an intracrustal interface. The SB2 profile is an ~15 km long, N-S oriented seismic line located in the eastern side of the San Bernardino basin between the San Andreas fault zone and the San Jacinto fault zone. It has 61 nodal stations with a spacing of roughly 350 m. The intracrustal interface is identified close to 2 s in parts of the profile. In the northern part of the profile, the Moho P-to-S conversion is at ~4 s and gradually increases near the middle of the profile. We will show our structural interpretations along the SB2 line and discuss their relationship to previous work.
