Abstract
The purpose of this study is deriving a 3D tomographic image of the shear-wave velocity structure of the lithosphere–asthenosphere system of the Mediterranean region from Rayleigh wave fundamental mode dispersion data. The database consists of almost 200 wavetrains corresponding to regional events recorded at the MedNet very-broad-band stations placed in the Mediterranean area. On the basis of the path-averaged group velocities derived for each epicentre-station trajectory, local group velocit...
