Estimation of Lateral Variations of the Mohorovičić Discontinuity Using 2D Modeling of Receiver Functions Rumi Takedatsu Advisor Dr. Kim Bak Olsen ABSTRACT We have used 2D finite difference modeling to examine the efficacy of estimating a relatively abrupt offset (>~35o) in Moho depth with a slant-stacking technique (Zhu and Kanamori 2000) from radial 0-2Hz P-wave receiver functions (RFs) at a single or a few closely-spaced stations. In particular, we have examined the advantage...

Timing And Style Of Miocene Deformation, Indian Pass And Picacho State Recreation Area, SE California, U.S.A. Krista Muela Advisor Dr. Gary Girty ABSTRACT The Chocolate Mountains anticlinorium is a complex structure extending from the San Andreas fault on the west to south-central Arizona on the east. It is well exposed between Indian Pass and Picacho State Recreation Area, SE California, where Neogene rocks reveal a complex record of Paleogene to early Miocene extension followed by...
