Teleseismic waveform data collected by short-period seismographs along Gyirong-Peiku Tso profile

The dataset is the teleseismic waveform data from the Gyirong – Peiku Tso short-period dense seismic array profile. The data can be used to receiver function methods to probe the structure of the crust and upper mantle. The Gyirong – Peiku Tso profile crosses the north-south Gyirong Rift, and the data are derived from 134 short-period seismic stations set up by the subject group along the east-west Gyirong – Peiku Tso profile, with strict site selection and good data quality. This profile provides an important scientific basis for revealing the velocity discontinuity morphology below the Chilung Rift Valley, i.e., the interfacial extension of the Indian continent swooping northward in the crust below the Himalayan zonation, and for further understanding the lateral changes of the MHT interface and the dynamics of the east-west extension of the Tibetan Plateau.

Data file naming and use method

The data set is stored in ZIP format and can be read by winzip, tar and other software. The data file is named by the name of the station, which is a Q file. For the generation of specific seismic events in the time period, the seismic handler software is required to read the data and carry out subsequent processing.
