Imaging a relic of complex tectonics the lithosphere-asthenosphere structure in the Eastern Mediterranean

, : Imaging a relic of complex tectonics the lithosphere-asthenosphere structure in the Eastern Mediterranean. Terra Nova 25(2): 102-109

The crust and upper mantle structure of the Eastern Mediterranean is investigated through the non-linear inversion of Raleigh wave dispersion curves extracted from broadband records in the region along two profiles crossing the Hellenic and Cyprian arcs. Corresponding density models are constructed, consistent with the observed gravity anomalies. The modeled profiles exhibit a continental crust type overlain by a thick sedimentary cover and underlain by a thick lithospheric mantle. The lithosphere-asthenosphere system exhibits features which suggests the presence of upducted asthenosphere exhumed to the north of the Hellenic arc, where the slab extension is limited to depths of about 220 Km.
