S receiver functions of the Northeastern Tibetan Plateau (2018GC007986)

The dataset partially used in the study of paper 2018GC007986 includes S receiver functions derived from 48 permanent stations and 11 stations of a temporary HY array deployed in the northeastern Tibetan Plateau.

Northeastern Tibetan Plateau, S receiver functions
:QiangXu :Building 3, Courtyard 16, Lincui Road, Chaoyang District, Beijing 100101, China

Data content: S receiver functions.

Data format: Q-files format which can be processed with the help of Seismic Handler (SH) software.

Subject: Geophysics.

The dataset as a zipped file contains one folder, which is named as NETibet_SRF, where NETibet means the northeastern Tibetan Plateau and SRF denotes S receiver functions.

Prof. Shunping Pei contributes to the waveform data of HY array and the teleseismic waveform data of permanent stations are provided by Data Management Centre of China National Seismic Network. Waveform data of China National Seismic Network. Institute of Geophysics, China Earthquake Administration.

A spiking deconvolution in the time domain is used to calculate the P and S receiver functions.

All the S receiver functions have been visually inspected to remove the bad traces that obviously different from the majority.

The dataset is applied to explore the lithospheric structure and understand the mechanism of northeastern expansion and growth of NE Tibetan Plateau.

Data should be used for academic research under the AGU data policy guidelines. No user is allowed to transfer the data to any third party. Users are suggested to refer to the following information:
